Good morning! We have hope today. Sorrow and mourning are banished, for today is filled with light and hope and peace. Our Savior came to us once, to save a dying world, and it is for this reason we remember that He will come again.
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”
Let us not fix our eyes upon death and this dying world, but on the Resurrection and the Life: Jesus Christ.
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
-The Apostle John, 1 John 4:9-10
