He is Risen!
“After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
“There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
“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; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: “He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.” ‘Now I have told you.’
“So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. ‘Greetings,’ He said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.'”
Matthew 28:1-10 NIV
Have a Blessed Easter!

Thank you for sharing this powerful scripture. Read with my children earlier this week when we baked resurrection rolls! Happy Easter!
I read this scripture this morning before going to church. I love it!!
Happy Easter, Janis!!
Thank you, Janis, for sharing this Scripture. This Easter I was struck with one part of it – this part: “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.” It’s that second part – “just as he said” – that came alive for me. He not only rose from the dead, but he did exactly what He had said and predicted beforehand! If His word can be trusted in this most miraculous event, then certainly ALL of His promises will one day come true, too!
