Risen

Something to think about.

Risen

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew  28: 5-6 

“He is risen,” spoken by an angel of God defines the destiny of humanity. This man Jesus died. Not an uncommon occurrence, in fact, is a very common occurrence it will happen to everyone.  What is unique is that He was brought back to life. His resurrection and the power of God that resurrected Him sets Him apart from every other person that has ever lived.  His life and ministry took on a whole new meaning because He became the first to come into a new life. Do you understand, without the resurrection, Jesus would probably have been lost and forgotten in the pages of history? After his crucifixion, all of His apostles were in hiding in fear for their lives. Without the resurrection, they all would have scattered and disappeared. Without this event, we would have nothing to believe in. But since it did happen it changes everything even our very lives. “He is Risen” are the most important words ever spoken.
