The angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid His body.”
The two Marys go out after Sabbath ends on Saturday evening and purchase spices to anoint Jesus’ body.
They go to the Tomb at sunrise on Sunday and discover that someone has rolled the stone from the entrance of the tomb. Inside, they discover a young man clothed in white. He tells them Jesus is not there, He has risen from the dead. They are to go and tell the disciples to go to Galilee where they will see Him.
Jesus is alive!
Sins are forgiven!
Death is conquered!
The Kingdom of God is here!
The reality of the resurrection is our sign that Jesus us who He says He is.
The war with God is over, if only we will surrender to Him and bow our lives to Jesus.
How awesome is the message of Easter. Lord you have defeated sin and overcome death. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ! Amen.
