“He is not here; for He is risen, just as he said.” Matthew 28:6a
These words give me chills at their power. They also make me want to celebrate. He is risen – JUST AS HE SAID.
Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Resurrection Sunday – this weekend is a huge time for reflection and for remembering what Jesus did for us. The Gospels recount what happened in powerful, moving words. They disciples paint us a picture of events that they themselves did not understand at the time. Do we take time to realize the magnitude, the meaning, the wonder and amazement of what happened on those days almost 2,000 years ago?
There is sin and there is pain in this world – we are all acutely aware of this. But Jesus has been there. Jesus voluntarily gave it all and went through pain we cannot even imagine to save us. To save US. Do we realize the magnitude of what He did for us?
What will we do for Him?
This is from the notes I took on the Easter sermon this morning: JESUS – live for, live like, show we are His, “Follow me”
May we celebrate the Resurrection every day.
