From the book of Matthew, chapter 28:
1 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as the snow.
4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
5 But the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know you seek Jesus who was crucified.
6 "He is not here, for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay."
Remember on Friday when I said that the story didn't end with Jesus' death? Today we celebrate the ultimate good news - He is risen!!
If you don't know Jesus as your Savior, if you've never heard any of this before, you can talk to me by leaving a comment on my blog, and I'll be happy to take the time and talk to you about it.
Happy Easter! He is Risen!!
"Now with outstretched arms
He welcomes in
Everyone who trusts in Him
His nail-scarred hands hold Heaven's gates
