ON THE THIRD DAY ~
HE HAS RISEN
Luke 24 New International Version (NIV)Jesus Has Risen
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. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 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? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8 Then they remembered his words.
9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles.11 But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away,wondering to himself what had happened.

A story of truth about Jesus and how he came to earth, left earth and lives forever!
A purpose, a promise and a future which is found in Jeremiah 29:11. A set schedule of time, days, events and an open heart to receive Jesus within you. Easter holds true for many things and family gatherings. Church services which include the story of Jesus, plays and even Easter Egg hunts. Hearts turned to Jesus on one day and the remembrance of years past. Thankful hearts that recall the cross, the grace and mercy given. Let us not forget what God has done for each of us. It is good to recall his promises throughout the Bible. It brings hope to one's heart and thankful for all he has already done in life.
Happy Easter to all and celebrating with other son this amazing day of hope! Jesus came, he came and lives forever inside our hearts. My prayers continue for each one who reads my blog.
