He Is Risen!

He is risen, is risen indeed.
"Now after the Sabbath,
as the first day of the week began to dawn,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came 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 from the door, and sat on it.
His countenance was like lightning,
and his clothing as white as snow.
And the guards shook for fear of him,
and became like dead men.
But the angel answered and said to the women,
“Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek
Jesus
who was crucified.
He is not here; for
He is risen,
as He said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And go quickly and tell His disciples that
He is risen from the dead,
and indeed He is going before you into Galilee;
there you will see Him.
Behold, I have told you.”
So they went out quickly from the tomb with
fear and great joy,
and ran to bring His disciples word.
Matthew 28:1-8

(I borrowed the cross above from our church's website. One of the church members drew the cross that hangs at the front of the sanctuary. I love the drawing and the symbolism on the cross itself.)

  2. Wha a blessed time of year. How wonderful that our Lord timed the Resurrection in the Spring, when symbols of new life and resurrection are all around us. My God is pretty smart that way.

    Have a blessed Easter!
