What an amazing day! Yet, how confusing it must have been when, 3 days after Jesus died on the cross and was laid to rest in the tomb, Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of James and Salome, found that the stone was rolled away and Jesus gone! They had watched Him hang on the cross and die without sin for the world. How could He be missing? Only the wrappings remained.
The women were greeted by the angel, who explained that Jesus had risen and soon after they were greeted by Jesus Himself! Their sadness and confusion quickly turned to joy and an excitement to tell others this great news!
How many saw Jesus, but didn’t believe? Would we have believed if we had had been there? The truth is, we have the proof. We have the accounts of those who were there in the Bible. Through His life, death, and resurrection, we have the promise of eternal life with Him in heaven. Let’s live our lives as believers, with hope and gratitude, and share this great news to all who will listen!
Dear Lord, Thank You for sending Jesus to earth as a living sacrifice for Your people. Thank You for
