He is risen, indeed!
‘Christ is risen’ is a spiritual truth in my life, not because of any archaeological proof from a tomb in ancient Israel, but because when life seems to cave in, Christ’s light leads the way to new life! I often wish that the path to new life did not have to include the way of sorrow or suffering, but it seems that it does. The cross of death and the empty tomb of new life go together. A seed has to die and fall in the ground, Jesus says. All I can say is that whenever it feels like I am at the end, God makes a way. So I am a walking witness that Christ is risen; he is risen, indeed!
I invite you to pray over Matthew 28:1-7 today.
