DEVOTION: The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.  Come and see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him.'  Now I have told you."  So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy.  The Story, p. 383 
The women were the first ones to the tomb that day.  They were sad, as any mourners would be, and even more so, because their dreams were shattered and their best friend and teacher was gone. 
Even though Jesus told them several times that he would rise three days later, they couldn't get past what they saw just two days earlier.  They saw him beaten beyond recognition.  They saw a crown of thorns on his head.  They saw his hands and feet nailed to a cross.  They saw him cry out and take his last breath, and they saw them take his lifeless body down off the cross.  He was definitely dead.  As far as they knew that was the end.  There was no coming back from the dead.  No one had done it before. 
But wait.....  Where was the body?  They had come to anoint it with burial spices and perfumes (Note: There were no funeral homes to send the body.  The family and friends took care of the body themselves.)  But it was gone.  Who could have done such a thing?  Who could have taken the body of their friend? 
Then the angel appeared and changed their lives forever with 10 simple words "He is not here.  He has risen, just as He said!" 
These same words either can change your life, if you have not yet believed, or have changed your life if you do believe.  They always do!  How have they changed your life?  Have they given you hope and strength?  Have they given you peace in the midst of great pain and suffering?  Have they taken your guilt, destroyed it, and replaced it with God's mercy and grace? 
Or maybe you have been a Christian so long that you have taken these words for granted.  Maybe these words haven't had an effect on you for quite some time.  Even the best of Christians (as if there is such a thing) can have times of spiritual complacency.  Anyone can have a time where their faith doesn't really matter too much to them.... until they need it. 
My friends, YOU NEED YOUR FAITH TODAY!!  You need it every day!  You need the knowledge and certainty of Christ's resurrection!  You need to know that He is no longer in the tomb, that He is alive!  And so does everyone around you!  Embrace it!  Cling to it!  Be reminded of it!  Live in it! 
Let us pray:  Lord God help us to not be complacent when it comes to our faith, but help us to hold it in the highest regard as the most precious of all the possessions you give to us.  Amen.
