“He Has Risen”
I know it is not Easter, I know we will be talking about the resurrection in just a few short weeks. However, as I was doing my devotions this morning, this is one of today’s passages for reading in the Bible in a year program.
As I thought about what scripture to use, it occurred to me, the account of the resurrection never grows old. This is Peter’s account of the resurrection as recorded by Mark.
Please read the following verses and enjoy the truth that the grave could not hold our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Up from the Grave He Arose.
Mark 16:1-81 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. 6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.'” 8 Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone because they were afraid.
Have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
