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,

Luke 24:1-8 (ESV)

The solid rock of my faith, “He is not here, but He has risen.” He was spit on, mocked, beaten, and crucified. All for us Jesus suffered. He suffered greatly! Paul tells us in Romans, “But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (5:8 ESV).

The stone has been rolled away, and death has been overcome! Praise the name of Jesus because, “there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 ESV).

Happy Easter,

Chaplain Howie
