Easter · Good News · Resurrection

after the silence…

After Saturday’s silence…

They expected more of the same…

And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back — it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.”

Mark 16:2-7 ESV

But they found an empty tomb… and a messenger telling them… He has risen… He is not here…

The silence broken… with Good News…

I’ve heard it several times over the past week… from various sources… in various ways…

If the tomb was not empty… none of this makes any difference…

But… if it’s true… if the tomb was empty… nothing else matters…

It’s the most important event in His story of the world… at least until He returns…

He lives…

He is life…

Make Him your life…

“Because I live, you also will live. …” –Jesus

John 14:19 ESV
