“You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here.” Mark 16:6
The greatest words in all of human history followed the most tragic of eternal events. Jesus who died, Jesus the Son of God, Jesus the Messiah was alive. And because of that, his followers now have new life. We no longer have to fear death and shame because Jesus overcame them with the empty tomb.
Today is resurrection Sunday. It is the celebration that what was dead is now alive. Every day that we as fallen and sinful human beings live in forgiveness and grace, we remember the death of Jesus and the triumphal exit from the tomb. Today we celebrate that all of history was changed forever.
