The disciples of the Lord Jesus had watched their Master suffer cruelly and die on the cross. They felt lost and lonely and scared without Him.
On the third day, on Sunday, a few of them went to His grave and they got a wonderful surprise! An angel of God stood there at the open grave! The angel told the disciples triumphantly: “The Lord Jesus is not here! He has risen from the dead just as He said!” Luke 24:6 The disciples’ grief turned to joy!! Their Master was alive! The Lord came to meet His beloved disciples the same day. He showed them the wounds in His hands and feet. They knew without a shadow of doubt that their master was alive bodily! He was not just a spirit!
The Lord Jesus won victory over sin and death for them and for us once for all! Even though our bodies will die, our spirits will live on forever with the Lord!
He said: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but shall have eternal life.” John 3:16
This is the glorious ‘Resurrection’ message from God to all of us who believe. My friend, do you believe this wonderful promise from Lord Jesus? On ‘Good Friday’ Christians all over the world remember the sacrifice oLord Jesus and His death on the cross for us. Two days later on ‘Easter Sunday’ we joyfully celebrate the Lord’s resurrection and the promise of eternal life in heaven with Him!
Prayer: “I bow down and worship You, Lord Jesus, my living Savior, and my God. You rose from the grave and won victory over sin and death for me! I thank You for giving me salvation and eternal life.”
