Happy Resurrection Sunday, friends! I hope and pray today that you know the hope, joy, and new life that Jesus gives, and that knowing Him is making a difference in your life.
Today we celebrate that death was swallowed up by His life, and darkness was extinguished by His light. Just as death was no match for His power, our sins are never beyond His redemption. Through His life and resurrection, we can have hope and abundant life here and now, and the promise of eternal life with Him. Today, let’s rejoice in the knowledge that our Redeemer lives!
“Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. Then the angel spoke to the women. ‘Don’t be afraid!’ he said. ‘I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.'” Matthew 28:1-6
