He Is Risen!

empty tomb 3

What was it like that Sunday morning as they walked toward the grave?
Sadness and confusion—how can this be God’s way?
Nonetheless, we’ll go anoint Him, but who will roll the stone away?
Then on their arrival—who had moved the stone?
And look! The tomb is empty, face cloth and linen wrappings left, they alone!
Is that a gardener in the shadows? Perhaps he’ll say what’s been done.
“Mary!” Jesus said. “Rabboni (Teacher)!” she exclaimed.
Jesus was alive again, and everything had changed.
Yes, the Son had risen, and things would never be the same.

Glorious news of resurrection! Jesus proved His claim to deity.
In Him there is salvation, and that’s good news for you and me.
He’s the truth, the life, the way to God, and King of Kings eternally.
The veil in the temple—top to bottom rent in two.
Access to God the Father, Jesus opened with His death for me and you.
Rising again He gives us who trust Him hope, joy, and life anew.

See Mark 16:1-6 and John 20:11-16.
