“He is alive!”
Can you imagine the joy of the women, of the other disciples? Can you imagine how the news spread, person to person? Can you feel the flutters of hope? Can you imagine running to the tomb with the disciples to see for yourself? Can you imagine daring to believe that this not the end, that God has done something only God could do, and that all your hopes and beliefs are true? It is true! He is alive! Jesus is Lord!
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.—1 Peter 1:8
Prayer: Jesus, we exalt You as our risen Lord! You have victory over all the powers of sin and darkness! We worship You! We exalt Your name! To You be the glory! Unspeakable joy! Amen and amen!
