Jesus is risen from the dead! Now, you can choose to believe this or not but whatever you choose is not going to change the fact that it is true. We can choose to live in denial of the truth but truth is not affected by our stubborness and sin. Thus, as we celebrate the Easter, we can choose to appropriate Jesus’ victory and enter into the gift of new life, or we can stay enmeshed in our sin. The glory and joy of the resurrection as opposed to the muck and filth of sin. Not much of a choice, is it? Let us make the sensible choice and choose the life God offers us over the death that sin imposes on us.
1 When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go and anoint him. 2 Very early when the sun had risen, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb. 3 They were saying to one another, “Who will roll back the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” 4 When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back; it was very large. 5 On entering the tomb they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were utterly amazed. 6 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. 7 But go and tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him, as he told you.’ ”
