He is RISEN!!!!

30 03 2013

“He is not here; He has risen!”

This is what the angels told the women who came to the tomb to put the burial spices on Jesus after the Passover had finished.  What shocking news!

“Remember how He told you, while He was still with you in Galillee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’

This was what the angels told them…brought to their remembrance what Jesus had told them about Himself. 

So, let’s see what’s going on here.  First, Jesus died in our stead.  Now He’s risen.  That’s proof that He was more than just a man.  He was and IS God!  God Incarnate!  God in the Flesh!  And…He did ALL of this for us!

Now it’s in our lap.  What do we do with this information?  How do we deal with Someone who has done all of this for us?  It’s very simple, really.  We are the only ones who make it difficult.  All we need to do is tell Him that we believe that what He did really did happen.  Then accept His gift of forgiveness. 

That’s what all of this is, you know…a GIFT!  We all know what to do with a gift, don’t we?  We accept it!  We say thank you!  Well, this is the same thing, except this is the best gift you will ever receive. 

My question to you:  Are you ready to accept this gift?  Accept it today.  He did all of this for you.  He is waiting for you.

“Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in.”

Jesus is saying this to you today.  He is standing at your heart’s door and knocking.  Will you let Him in today?  Just ask Him in and He will.  He never lies.  When He says He will come in, He will.  He just needs your permission to enter.

Come to Him today.

Happy Resurrection Day!
