He Is Risen!

English: Resurrection of Christ

What if Jesus had not risen from the grave as He said He would? Where would we be? I don't want to think about it. But He is risen and is alive with the Father in heaven and one day He is coming back to take us to live with Him. That is the hope of Easter and the basis of the Christian faith.

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all died, even so in Christ shall all be made alive" (1 Corinthians 15: 20 - 22).

And so the journey to Calvary has ended. Jesus has been crucified, but now He is risen, as He said. And we too are alive in Him. The empty tomb is a silent witness to the greatest event in history. We don't worship someone who died thousands of years ago, but Someone who is alive.

Happy Easter!
