He Isn’t Here—He Has Risen Victoriously!
Jesus was beaten, crucified and buried. Friday looked hopeless and dead.
But the story didn’t end there, because Sunday is HERE! Our King has RISEN! On the third day, just as He said, Jesus raised up out of the grave. The tomb was empty and He was no where to be found. What looked like the greatest defeat turned out to be the greatest victory.
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.
Everything in your life should look different because of the power of the resurrection living in you.
This resurrection Sunday looks different than any other one. As we are all in our homes, let’s take time to reflect and remember the payment Jesus made on the cross. Let’s not forget what He went through just so you and I could be restored back into a relationship with Him.
He is risen! He is risen indeed.
“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.
“He isn’t here—he has risen victoriously, just as he said!” Matthew 28:6
“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
