He Is Risen!

He is risen indeed!

Jesus spent three days in the grave, and today He is risen.

He is risen indeed!

The resurrection gives us hope, even in light of death. Jesus died and rose again, and after we die we will rise again with him. This is a great hope for anyone who lives in the face of death, be that many years ago, four years ago, or even today. Some people die on Easter, but Christ raises those who accept his sacrifice and follow him.

Spend Easter reflecting especially on Christ’s resurrection, though this should be a daily thought. Spend time with people who Christ loved enough to die for. What better recommendation can someone request than that a perfect man was willing to die for them?

Christ Abide. He is risen!

Editor’s note: We’ll be taking Monday off. Come back on Tuesday.
