Matthew 28:6 – He is not here, for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where He lay.
He is Risen!
Never has there been better news – the King is Risen, and that Resurrection, significant news as it is on its own, means your salvation.
Yet, read the verse above. Upon providing this good news, the angel’s immediate follow up was “come and see” – knowing that the news was so unprecedented that immediate proof would be needed. They saw, and the reality of the Resurrection is something made abundantly clear in Scripture as a factual, historical event.
As we celebrate Easter, let us never fall into the trap of religiosity or detachment. Let us always remember the raw magnitude of something that happened – Jesus rose from the dead, was not there anymore, walked among men after His death, and conquered death on our behalf.
I wish you and your family a Blessed Easter celebrating the Risen Savior. May you know Him and experience this day in a whole new and powerful way!
