MAY 15 – GONE

5/15 Luke 24:1-7
But very early on Sunday morning the women came to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 They found that the stone covering the entrance had been rolled aside. 3 So they went in, but they couldn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 They were puzzled, trying to think what could have happened to it. Suddenly, two men appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. 5 The women were terrified and bowed low before them. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking in a tomb for someone who is alive? 6 He isn’t here! He has risen from the dead! Don’t you remember what he told you back in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again the third day?”
GONE
His body was gone. He had risen. What Christ declared had actually happened. Death could not hold Him. The grave was empty. Praise the Lord for our Savior rose from the dead paying the price for our sin-a price we could not pay. Jesus is alive.
