We Serve a Risen Savior!

Verse of the Month

“But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here.   
See the place where they laid Him.”
(Mark 16:6 NKJV)

Scripture Reading:  Luke 23 and 24:1-10 

We serve a risen Savior!   

“He is not here, but is risen.” (Luke 24:6) 
Luke 23, gives the account of the trial of Jesus in Pilate’s court, His brutal crucifixion, and burial in the tomb.  The Pharisees were getting their wish.  With the Truth out of the way, they could get back to the business of oppressing the people with their twisted theology and burdensome rules.   

The world and satan would have you believe that the life of Jesus stopped there.  God’s Word, however, gives us proof that this wasn’t the end. Read on into Luke 24:1-10.  Angels met the visitors at the tomb of Jesus and asked, 

“Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen.” (Luke 24:67) 

Our Savior took our sins on His own body to pay the price that we weren’t able to pay ourselves.  Then Jesus Christ rose on the third day “having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:15).  He rose in victory that through Him we might have victory! 

Resurrection Sunday is a day to celebrate our glorious, risen Savior.  As you read in the scriptures what Jesus did for us on the cross, praise the Lord for the truth of His Word.  Take the truth with you and tell your family and friends of the great things that Christ has done for you.

Share the good news of Jesus Christ with a lost world.  Let the truth that we serve a risen Savior abound in your heart each day.
