1"Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6“He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. 7“Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”

      8And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples. 9And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they will see Me.”(Matthew 28:1 - 10 NASB)

HE IS RISEN! HE HAS RISEN INDEED. NOW, IN 2011, the message is the same: HE IS RISEN! JESUS IS OUR RISEN LORD! THIS IS OUR HOPE AND OUR FUTURE! EVERY KNEE WILL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE WILL PROFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!

How is it with your soul today? Do you serve the risen Lord Jesus Christ, or are you still in rebellion? I echo the words of Joshua: "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15).

I pray that all would serve the Lord and live forever in His Grace and power! JESUS REALLY IS THE RISEN LORD!
