~ Happy Easter and Resurrection Day! ~




The Cross and the Empty Tomb
By Roy Lessin 

The cross means that we can look back and be thankful;
The empty tomb means that we can look ahead and be hopeful.

The cross fills us with gratitude;
The empty tomb fills us with expectation.

The cross means that He died for us;
The empty tomb means that He lives for us.

The cross means that the old has passed away;
The empty tomb means that all things have become new.

The cross is the triumph of mercy;
The empty tomb is the triumph of righteousness.

The message of the cross is, “It is finished;”
The message of the empty tomb is, “I am alive forever more.” [We are alive forever more In Him]

The resurrection allows us to look up, to look forward, and to look ahead.
When we look up we see Jesus seated at the right hand of God,
When we look forward we see Him daily guiding our steps,
When we look ahead we see Him coming again for His bride.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ brings the assurance that the enemy of death has been defeated, our home in heaven is secure, and our inheritance will never fade away. How good He is, and how blessed we are to serve a Lord who is alive, who is above all, and who loves us with an everlasting love!




The Resurrection of Jesus Christ:
Calms Our Fears
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking  for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here;
Confirms His Word
He has risen, just as He said.
Comforts Our Hearts
Come and see the place where he lay.
Commissions Our Lives
Then go quickly and tell His disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.
Clarifies Our Vision
There you will see Him.’ Now I have told you.”
 Matthew 28: 5-7



May you all have a joyous and blessed Resurrection Sunday! May the Lord bless you and keep you and shine His face upon you and give you His Peace!
