The second Person of the Trinity came to earth and took on human form. He lived the life we could not live and died the death we should have died. How dark and sad those days must have been for His disciples when He took His last breath. He descended into the heart of the earth and they were now alone.
Without the One who loved them, taught them and led them.
Without the One who spoke words of truth and gave them hope in the
God of their fathers.
Without the One who did miracles in their midst and
strengthened them in their faith.
and without hope. But then Sunday morning came. The women who went to the tomb to anoint his body found it empty. He was not there. The angel told them “He is risen” (Matthew 28:6).
Jesus is back and it truly did change everything. For those at the open tomb, for the disciples who gathered, for the two on the road to Emmaeus and for you and me…it changed everything.
Hope was Renewed
Faith was Restored
Trust was Deepened
Our Lord and Saviour conquered death and the grave and His promises of new life were made available to all people. Don’t let the joy of Easter morning be eclipsed by the darkness of this world and don’t let your faith be little when our God is so big!
He who raised Jesus from the cross has raised us to new life in Him. Cling to Him and find your rest in Him. Let your joy be such that you can’t help but speak of Him. Tell the world…..
He’s back….Jesus lives…and it changes everything!
There is someone in your life who needs to hear this message today. Speak up and tell them. Be a witness for Jesus–not only to the ends of the earth, but also in your own backyard, workplace and even your church. Share His saving grace with someone who does not know Him and also share it with those who do— it will strengthen both their faith and yours.
Speak His name, the name above all names. Rejoice in Him and remember you have been called to proclaim His name, His forgiveness of sins and His gift of new life to those who do not know Him:
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?
And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that
preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
