Sunday Devotional: Luke 24:1-9

“But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.  And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.  And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”  And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.” (Luke 24:1-9)

Resurrection Sunday.  A day where we as followers of Jesus get to celebrate what happened that Sunday morning that followed the crucifixion of Jesus a few days earlier.  It is the culmination of the great work that started when Jesus paid for our sins by dying on the cross on Good Friday (that’s what makes Good Friday so good).  Sunday was the resurrection to new life.  Jesus is alive and well.  And He is the example that we as believers have that we die that we will have new life in new bodies.  Death and sin don’t have dominion over the world.  That all ended because of Jesus.  Resurrection Sunday is about hope and celebration.  He is Risen.  He is Risen indeed.
