Have you ever had a friend promise you something that seemed too good to be true? I mean, they’ve been your friend for a long time, and they’ve always been honest with you and committed to you. But then, they promise something that seems SO huge, all the promises they’ve kept in the past can’t keep you from doubting, even for just a fleeting moment, if they’re completely serious?
Easter is the celebration of that moment in the hearts of all of the earliest followers of Jesus… when the disciples realized that the grave was empty, it meant that ALL of Jesus’ claims and promises for them were really true. This Easter, let us celebrate that every promise He makes to us in His Word is TRUE!
May the angel’s words that brought comfort and relief to those early-rising Jesus followers that special morning, give you comfort as well…
He is risen, just as he said… -Matthew 28:6
