April 16 – Resurrection Sunday, Just As He Said

“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” Matthew 28:6 (NIV)

What words from the Bible could be more thrilling for Easter than the message which the angel told the women who came to the grave where Jesus’s body had been buried. This is why this day is also called Resurrection Sunday because by Sunday morning, all there was to see was the place where He had lain. Jesus was gone from the grave. The women had a chance to see Him a little later that day and so did most of his disciples. It is a wonderful truth that Jesus did live again after dying on the Cross. And, He is still living today. This is the great message of Easter. Because He lives we too shall live. When we believe and accept what he did for us on the cross we receive eternal life. We look forward to eternity in heaven. We will live because He lives. Remember not only on Easter but every day the message from that first Resurrection Sunday, “He is not here, He has risen just as He said.”
