On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not found the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside the,. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them,” Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; for her has risen! Remember how he told you, while still with you in Galilee: ” The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day raise again.” Luke 24:1-7
Light comes after the night has been long and dark. Jesus has concord death. The women was so surprise just ad his disciples were on that very day. Their sorrow has turn to joy just as Jesus has told them as he walk among them.
Our hearts have leap with J-O-Y as we remember that death could never hold you, Praise your Name. You Lord had taken our place on the Cross at Calvary our own punishment you took upon yourself because you love all of your children so deeply. Give us the words to speak to others that “You Live, and that you died for all mankind so that we can continue to make more disciples for your kingdom.
Grace and Peace to all of you my friends, on this Easter Day
