CHRIST IS RISEN!!! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Can you imagine the frightening scene. First to see the stone rolled away, then to see two angels in the tomb and have them talk to you, and then to see Jesus himself, alive and speaking to you? Imagine the incomprehensible fear and joy all at the same time. Just try to imagine how you would feel, if you can imagine it.
It is real! It is true! It isn't a fable. It isn't a trick! He appeared to hundreds of people, both believers and unbelievers! He appeared to Saul, who became Paul! He appeared to Thomas who touched his hands and side.
What joy! What relief! What peace! It is all for us! It is for us to rejoice in and find comfort in! It is for us to REST in!
Rest in the sure knowledge of the resurrection for all who believe! It is yours!
Let us pray: Lord thank you for the comfort, peace, and rest I find in the resurrection. Help me to rest in it today so that all my troubles, my strained relationships, my guilt, may all melt away, that times of peace and refreshing may occur. Amen.
