On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. (Luke 24:1-3 NIV)
What would you do if you looked in the grave of someone you loved and they weren’t there?
The Bible says the women who came to the tomb discovered it was empty and only contained the remnants of Jesus’ clothes. It says “while they were wondering about this,” angels appeared, which made them bow down in fright! But once they heard the news they went to tell the 11 disciples this most astonishing fact…Jesus has risen!
As Christians, we must do the same thing. We’ve been changed by the Good News of Christ’s resurrection. We can’t hold that news inside! His resurrection power is so great that not even dynamite, nor the power of the sun, nor any other force can begin to compare. It breaks the chains of darkness. It changes our identity from being a slave of this world to being free to enjoy a life full in Christ. We must run to tell a dying world about the freedom we have, because Jesus has risen!
