Sunday is HERE! Our King is RISEN! Jesus was beaten, crucified and buried but the story doesn’t end there. On the third day, just as He said, he was RISEN. The tomb was empty. He was no where to be found. What looked like the greatest defeat turned out to be the greatest history!
“Greatest man in history, had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. His name is Jesus.” Tom Hemby
This one day changed everything forever. Everything! Isn’t it so powerful to think about? Satan was defeated. Your sin was forgiven. Death was swallowed up. “He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed” 1 Peter 2:24.
As you spend time with family and friends today, I hope you focus on the true meaning of this special day. While there is nothing wrong with food, games, Easter egg hunts, and other activities that go on during this day, take time to focus on the true meaning. HE IS RISEN!
“He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen.” Matthew 28:6
