“He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you” Matthew 28:6-7, NKJV.
Jesus had been telling His disciples what He came for. He had come to give His life as a sacrifice for our sins. Yet, He told them that wouldn’t be all that would happen. He also prophesied in three days that He would rise from the dead. He would tell them in different ways again and again that He would overcome the grave and rise. Now, the angel says He is risen, just like He said.
Jesus didn’t come only to wipe away your sin. He came to make you alive. He came to give you eternal life. He came to make you new. He came to make the life of God, the purposes of God, the plan of God for you to rise!
When He rose, you rose too. When He rose with all power in His hands, you have risen with power in yours. You have been raised to be the man God created you to be. Yes, it is amazing, beyond your comprehension, with everything you’ve been through, but you stand now in Christ, full of His Spirit and joy, and you are alive! Whatever He said will rise in your life, it will. It will be just like He said.
Prayer: Father, Jesus is alive! He rose just like He said. You’ve done great things for me. You have done what You said you will do in my life. Things are rising that appeared like they couldn’t. What an awesome God You are! Thank You Jesus for Your resurrection and mine! You made me alive! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
