The Tomb is Empty, He is Risen

dreamstimefree_186890[1]It’s empty. He is risen. But not before dying an unimaginable death for you and for me. If you don’t know Him this Easter, if this is unclear or confusing or simply something you have never heard about please read the page on Steps to Knowing God. You’ll find it in the right sidebar. Don’t build your Easter on anything less than Christ the solid rock. This is serious business. The greatest sacrifice ever made for anyone, was made for you and me. As always, if you have any questions please post them. If you simply want to express how thankful you are to Him, please do. In this day of instability and world terrorism threats, we need the hope of that empty tomb.  We need to know, our Savior lives. And one day, He will return for us. We need something to hold on to when we think we can no longer hold on. But this something, lives and will return again one day. God in human flesh, died a horrible death on our behalf. Again, if you need this hope, this security in your own life, remember the tomb is empty. Don’t live another day, another moment, without surrendering your life to the One who surrendered His life for you.

Matthew 28:1-9 (NASB)
1  Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.
2  And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.
3  And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4  The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.
5  The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
6  He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.
7  Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
8  And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.
9  And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.
