He Has Risen!

on March 31, 2015

He is not here; He has risen, just as He said.
Come and see the place where He lay.                                                                                                                              ~Matthew 28:6

This weekend we will once again celebrate the heart of our faith.

That first Easter all those years ago must have been scary for the Marys when they found the tomb empty. The weekend had been traumatic with the trial and murder of Jesus upon the cross. All they wanted to do that early Sunday morning was to visit the tomb where He lay.

I sometimes imagine their fear at not knowing who had taken Him. Twice in just a few days, He had been torn from their grasp.

What joy to find Him on the road and to know that He had risen! Did they really understand what that meant? Since we have the benefit of history, we know exactly what it means.

Eternal life. Death overcome.

I pray that as you celebrate Easter this week, dear reader, that the joy of knowing your Savior lives will wash over you anew.

He has risen!
