“He is Risen”
Three small words.
But three words that changed the world.
The birth and life of Jesus Christ, would have little meaning, if not for his Resurrection.
His resurrection can bring hope to us all.
The Atonement of Jesus Christ—his prayerful pleadings and suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane, his sacrifice and pain for us on the Cross, and his glorious resurrection can give us meaning to life.
Because of Him, we can feel peace during difficult times, release from sin, and greater perspective and hope in an eternal life.
He has beckoned us to “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest”. (Matthew 11:28)
Rest in Jesus Christ, does not mean we will be free from problems, but that we have greater strength to get through them with him as our partner.
At this Easter time of year let’s be thankful we have a true master to follow and that understands us. For he has said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 6:33)
Because He is risen each one of us can rise up from our pain and sorrows and difficulties in this life and feel happiness and peace now and full rest and glorious joy in the world to come.
Glory be to God and his son, Jesus Christ!
