Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.
And behold, there was a great earthquake,
for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and
rolled back the stone and sat on it.
His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.
And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men.
But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid,
for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where he lay.
Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead,
and behold, he is going before you to Galilee;
there you will see him. See, I have told you.”
So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy,
and ran to tell his disciples.
And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!”
And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him.
Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid;
go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
And if Christ has not been raised,
your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.
Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
If in Christ we have hope in this life only,
we are of all people most to be pitied.
But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead,
the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For as by a man came death,
by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
I Corinthians 15:17-22
What more can I say? Christ came, died, finished the work of redemption for us and to show that He triumphed over sin and death, He rose from the dead. All I can say on a day like Easter is
Hallelujah! What a Savior.
Let us rejoice together as we read these wonderful words from GOD’s Word.
