Christ Is Risen – Good News for Easter Sunday

He is risen!

Mark 16:1-7

When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go and anoint him. Very early when the sun had risen, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb. They were saying to one another, “Who will roll back the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up,
they saw that the stone had been rolled back; it was very large.

On entering the tomb they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were utterly amazed.
He said to them, “Do not be amazed! You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Behold the place where they laid him. But go and tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him, as he told you.'”

The Daily Path: Christ is risen! 

Our Lord rolled back the huge stone in my life so that I could live again. I’m so grateful for all God that has done for me and my family in the past year. His grace has been abundant. So much love has come our way in the most difficult of times to show us that we are not alone. This would not have been possible were there not a living God. 

I pray that each of you will come to know Christ’s love as I have. Let Him roll back the tombstone in your own life. 

May the Peace of Christ be with you this Easter.

Room to Chat: Thanks to everyone who has joined our little novena for Michael these past two weeks. I know God listens when two or more come together to pray. And I pray that He rewards each of you for the time you’ve spent these past two weeks remembering our brother Michael.

 

Happy Easter
