He is Risen!
Those three words will never adequately express the victory they represent for you and for me. In that moment when the tomb was empty and Jesus rose from the dead, evil lost FOREVER! As the apostle Paul wrote, “Oh death where is your victory? Oh death where is your sting?”
Now although all of us have felt the stings of evil through trials, troubles, and yes even death, none of those things have the final word.
On this most holy day of celebration we will hear a new word from scripture -- a word that offers us hope, assurance, confidence, joy, and love. Friends, Jesus Christ is risen today!
