Easter Sunday 2024

He is RISEN!
He is RISEN indeed!
The angel said, โ€œDonโ€™t be so surprised. Arenโ€™t you looking for Jesus, the Nazarene who was crucified? He isnโ€™t here! He has risen! He has come back to life! Look, thatโ€™s where his body was lying. Heโ€™s not there!โ€ 
โ€“ Mark 16:6
Yesterdayโ€™s silence has ended with todayโ€™s REJOICING!
The debt has been paid. Salvation is fulfilled. The tomb stands empty.
Christ is Risen!
Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
– Charles Wesley
And then on the third at break of dawn, the Son of heaven rose again. 
O trampled death where is your sting? The angels roar for Christ the King!
I took the photo above on Easter Sunday a decade ago. Bright and cheerful daisies lined our dinner table at my brother and sister-in-law’s home. Earlier that morning, we sat on blankets at the beach watching the sun rise and holding our own personal Easter sunrise service. It’s a favorite memory with my sweet family. Easter often looks different year to year, but that doesn’t change the message . . . HE IS RISEN!!!
