He’s not here; He’s there!

He’s not here; He’s Risen!
Happy Easter!

Matthew 28:5-6 NIV
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. [6] He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

Jesus, the savior, is not a dead man. He’s no longer among the dead. He is among the living.
You cannot find Him here, the angel said. Why?

Because He has risen! Hallelujah!

The disciples and those whose hopes are displaced initially now can rejoice the lamb that died is alive again. The power of resurrection brought Jesus from the grave. And now, we can live again.

Now, we have hope, not only in this life but in the life to come. We are not miserable people wandering this world, but we are confident that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead will work in us and quicken us into glory, and this world will have no place in us anymore.

We will live together with our risen God forever and ever.
Amen!
