Good Resurrection Morning! [Mat 28:6 NLT] 6 He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. HALLELUJAH!!! Those words sound simple, but it was anything but simple. Jesus, after being beaten, crucified and laid in a grave. Was not finished yet. He didn’t lay down to rest like we speak when one of our loved ones pass away. He had important work to do. You see if He had stopped after the crucifixion, we would not have eternity with God. We would just be forgiven. Jesus had a battle to fight…no rest! He had to finish what He started. He had to defeat the forces of hell and obtain the keys of death and hell. [Rev 1:18 NLT] 18 I am the living one. I died, but look--I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave. That’s why we sing “Victory in Jesus” and “Because He Lives”.
Without the cross, without the battle, without the rising from the grave this day would just be a day where we hunt for eggs.
He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen!
Thank you for completing and not stopping in the middle and saying…I’ve had enough!
Have a Blessed Resurrection Day!
