Luke 24:1-8 (KJV)
24 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
8 And they remembered his words,
This is my risen Saviour. Even death could not defeat Him. I am so thankful that He fulfilled God’s plan. He overcame death and ascended to His Father in Heaven. Therefore, we can do the same.
Every time I hear this story, I love Jesus even more. He’s suffered it all because He loves us. When I think of Him and how He cares for me every day, my heart overflows with love and joy. Jesus shared His inheritance with us. We are loved by the same God. And we have the ability to love others as He has loved us.
Even though the enemy tried to defeat Jesus, they had no power over Him. God was overseeing every detail. He gave His Son as a ransom for us. What amazing love! I am so grateful to know Him, to love Him, and to be loved by Him.
One day as we close our eyes in death, we have peace in knowing that Jesus will raise us up as well. Because of His loving and selfless act, we get to rejoice for Eternity with Him.
