The first Easter Sunday some of the women who followed Jesus went to Jesus’ tomb. The tomb was empty and two angels were there. They asked the women a question we read in Luke 24:5-7:
“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’
These women had seen Jesus die on the cross. They knew he had died. What a question-“why do you look for the living among the dead?”
Jesus defeated death for us. His resurrection is proof that when he died for our sins, it accomplished the plan of God.
Jesus lives. He is alive on his throne in heaven and one day he will return.
Because he lives, we can face the problems of this life. Because he lives, we can face tomorrow whatever it brings. Because he lives, we have hope in any situation.
Happy Resurrection Sunday to all of my readers.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
