May the celebration of the risen Christ bring hope to everyone! Set our eyes to the promises of heaven; leaving all sorrows at the foot of the cross.

Thank You, Jesus, for suffering what You did for our salvation, for dying, and rising from the dead to lead us home. Your awesomeness fills the earth!! Amen.

1 Peter 1:3 English Standard Version (ESV)

Born Again to a Living Hope

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Luke 24:1-12 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Resurrection

24¬†But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb,¬†taking the spices they had prepared.¬†2¬†And they found¬†the stone rolled away from the tomb,¬†3¬†but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.¬†4¬†While they were perplexed about this, behold,¬†two¬†men, stood by them in dazzling apparel.¬†5¬†And as they were¬†frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, ‚ÄúWhy do you seek the living among the dead?¬†6¬†He is not here but has risen. Remember how he told you,¬†while he was still in Galilee,¬†7¬†that the Son of Man¬†must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and¬†be crucified and on¬†the third-day rise.‚Ä̬†8¬†And¬†they remembered his words,9¬†and returning from the tomb they¬†told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.¬†10¬†Now it was¬†Mary Magdalene and¬†Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles,¬†11¬†but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and¬†they did not believe them.¬†12¬†But¬†Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw¬†the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
