Happy Resurrection Sunday

“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.”


I am so ever grateful that Jesus was faithful in his mission to save mankind.  Have you ever wondered what would it be like, what  would your life be like if he had not died for your sins?  What hope would we have?  I could give a huge message on the resurrection but today I want us to just reflect on those two questions.  When Mary and the others went to check and see if their Lord was in the tomb they had great hope and expectation that he would not be there.  Although Mary felt some fear because she did not see him she came to the conclusion that he had risen just as he said he would.  We know from scripture that Jesus rose from the dead and is now sitting at the right hand of the father but this day he take part in his broken body and his blood shed. 

I am so grateful that I can partake in this day.  For me it is celebration and remebrance of what he did for me.  make this day personal so that you can reap the benefits of knowing what this day is all about.  Some call it Easter and some call it Resurrection Sunday.  But whatever you call it make sure that you are sharing with family, children, and friends that this day is not about hiding eggs, wearing the finest dress, and easter bunnies but about the man who died to save the entire world.

have a great Resurrection Sunday
