Luke 24: 1-49
John 20: 1-23
1 Corinthians 15: 1-58
The texts listed above talks about the Resurrection of Jesus. Oh what a great morning it was for us when Jesus rose from the dead. We often celebrate Easter with new clothes, Easter baskets, Easter egg hunts, Easter programs, and Easter candy.
However, Easter is about the risen life of Jesus. Easter is about Jesus hanging on the cross, dying, and getting up with ALL power in His hands. Jesus conquered death so that we would have eternal life.
Whenever you get a moment, read the scriptures from above, and reflect on how different stories are shared about the resurrection of Jesus. However, they all share the same ending. JESUS GOT UP FROM THE GRAVE!
As I reflect over the cross, I have no time for NEGATIVE THOUGHTS, NEGATIVE BEHAVOIR, or NEGATIVE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. When thinking about the cross, we will celebrate the goodness of Jesus and how he conquered death on our behalf. Lord, help me remember the CROSS daily.
In mighty name of Jesus,
Reflection: Easter is only mention in the bible one time (Acts 12:4).
