He Is Not Here

Luke 24~ The Message: "At the crack of dawn on Sunday, the women came to the tomb carrying the burial spices they had prepared. They found the entrance stone rolled back from the tomb, so they walked in. But once inside they could not find the body of the Master Jesus. They were puzzled, wondering what to make of this. Then out of nowhere it seemed, two men, light cascading over them, stood there. The women were awestruck, and bowed down to worship. The men said, 'Why are you looking for the Living One in a cemetery?' He is not here, but raised up.'"

There can be no Easter without Good Friday. No resurrection without a crucifixion. No empty tomb without the body of Christ placed in the tomb. All was fulfilled when the angels said, "He is not here."

HE IS RISEN! Thanks be to God!

May each of you have a blessed Easter filled with the joy that knowing Christ our Savior brings! He is not here. He is Risen!

It is the truth not resurrection without crucifixion! I just wish there could of been a easier and less painful way, but this was the only way.
I hope that your feeling better each day Renee.
God Bless and Happy Easter,
