“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” 

Matthew 28:6

The gospels record that after Jesus was crucified, his body was taken down from the cross, and placed in a tomb. 

The grave was guarded by Roman soldiers and a large stone was put over the entrance, so that no one could steal the body.

On Sunday, three days after the crucifixion, Mary, followed by some of Jesus’ disciples, visited the tomb to find that the stone had been rolled away and His body was gone. 

According to the Gospels, Jesus was seen that day by Mary Magdalene, and was seen for 40 days afterwards by the disciples.

Christians call this the Resurrection. 

Easter is the most important event on the Christian calendar. It celebrates God raising his son Jesus from the dead as well as the destruction of the power of sin and death forever.

It symbolizes the opening of Heaven with the gift of eternal life to everyone.

He has risen! He has risen indeed!

He breathes new life, so that we can live…free. You can try to bury Power, but it won’t stay there. You can try to bury Truth, but it is not dead. You can try to bury Love, but it cannot be contained.

God’s not dead. And we’re not alone. Not ever. He lives! May we allow that truth to soak in deep as we read these reminders from God’s Word…
