Unspeakable Joy Devotional

April 21st


He is Risen! Early Sunday morning, several women including Mary Magdalene and Mary the Mother of James went to the tomb and discovered that the large stone covering the entrance had been rolled away. The angel said: “Don’t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen.” Matthew 28:5-6

And because He lives, we who know Him shall live also. Jesus Christ conquered sin and death; He is alive forever. Today we celebrate and churches are filled with worshippers because there is an empty tomb in Jerusalem. 1 Corinthians 15:20 “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.”

The message of the resurrection, life springs forth from death. A desert becomes a garden. Beauty transcends the ugly. Love overcomes hatred. A tomb is emptied. The grim and haunting outline of a cross is swallowed in the glow of an Easter morning sunrise. (M. Anders)

“Because He lives, we shall live also!!”
John 14:19
