Scripture: Matthew 28:1-9 1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb 2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook 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 was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” 8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.
Devotional: Tomorrow we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is no greater moment than this for those who follow Jesus, for without the resurrection, there is no victory over sin and death. Simply put, there is no Christianity without the resurrection.
Don’t overlook the significance of this event. Jesus’ death and resurrection changed the world. And it provided for you and me to receive life, though we deserve death, A beautiful, abundant, and blessed life. Eternal life. Give thanks for that today.
