He is not here. He is risen as He said.
If our Lord had died and had not risen, our hope would be in vain. Without Christ’s resurrection power, victory over sin would be nothing more than empty rhetoric with no hope of eternal life.
We would of all people be most miserable. But Christ not only died. He also rose again. Truly that is the reason for the victory.
If the joy of Easter is not a reality, you cannot be assured of anything but your earthly life. Today let the joy of Easter become reality.
He is risen as He said and is going before you into Galilee. There you will see Him (Mathew 28:7). Now we can sing with joy, “Christ the Lord is ris’n today! Alleluia.”
