And just like that, the darkness vanished.
Confusion turned to amazement.
Sadness turned to joy.
Words previously spoken, were now made clear.
His words were not empty promises or fairytale ideation. They were truth.
The cruelest of deaths and the harshest of penalties was paid on our behalf.
He carried our sin, our failure, our punishment…
And defeated death, Hell, and the grave.
“He is not here. He is risen!”
We have a reason to celebrate! He is not just a good man, or a dead prophet. He is a living and reigning Lord, worthy of all honor and praise.
Happy Resurrection Day!
