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.
Is known as a combination of things to people. Some believe in Jesus, some don't. Some believe in doing Easter Eggs and bunnies, but some don't. I personally believe the story of Jesus and happy he rose again. I do like Easter Egg hunts, bunnies and happy children. I like my family and friends around on this special day too.
There is more to the story:
As you read Luke 24 above, continue to read in the Bible the rest of the story. Remember the words, he is risen! When I think of what Jesus went through on good Friday I cry. A person beaten and betrayed by others. A life that walked among other humans and yet treated the worst. I as a mom can't imagine the depth of pain of his family and friends that watched. Jesus walked this earth and told a story of truth. A God who did miracles for others and he chose 12 men to walk along side of him. Jesus had disciples from all walks of life. It shows us that everyone is different and yet can come together. Jesus would be betrayed by one of them and that shows we never know what is inside of someone.
Have you ever been betrayed and felt the pain of someone? I have and it comes back to memory at times. I remind myself of the love of God and how he does not betray us. God wants us to prosper as our soul prospers.
3 John 2 New International Version (NIV)Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
