He Is Risen

"But he said to them, 'Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples-and Peter-that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see him, as He said to you.'" Mark 16:6-8

What does it mean that Jesus was not in the tomb when the women went to find him? Of course, those in power during Jesus' time dismissed it as thieves or the disciples somehow grabbing the body during the night (despite the presence of a number of guards, not to mention the bolder). We know, however, that it means Jesus fulfilled the promise He had made to the disciples, and to us that, although he would die on the cross, he would be resurrected, and live again in heaven with the Father. He died for us and our sins, and sits in heaven awaiting the time when we will walk with him forever. Praise God for these promises and for the sacrifice he made for us. Remember what love Christ showed for us, and make sure you show that love to others today and every day.

"Dear Jesus - We cannot begin to show thanks for what you have given us with your life, death, and resurrection. In some way, help us to show the world this wonderful gift through Christian love." - Amen
