We can only imagine what it must have been like to be the woman at the tomb that morning. Jesus has been dead since Friday. How can he be alive we saw him die, but the Angels said that He is alive.
Last night I caught an interview with Henry Cavill on Conan Obrien. He shared a story of how his nephew told his teacher that his uncle was superman. The teacher punished him for lying. Can you imagine what people would have thought about the story of these woman? People today still dismiss it as a fantasy. How can a dead man come back to life? With today’s knowledge and technology people do come back to life, but many still believe God could not raise Jesus.
The angel told the ladies to go tell His disciples that He is Risen! News that would change them forever. That news is sill changing lives today. Because Jesus lives we will live also. His Resurrection tells us that His death was accepted as full payment for our sins. My friends not only are you forgiven, but you will be resurrected. Job said it,
25 I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. 26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; 27 I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!( Job 19:25-27 (NIV))
This news it not just any good news it is news that changes everything. It changes who we are. This good news contains the power to change lives. Sharing this good news can change someone’s life forever. Be bold my friends. Jesus has saved us that my friends is even better news than “My uncle is superman.” People may not believe you but it still is true and believing it means we become bold and tell others. That they too may know His Salvation. Amen!
