He is Not Here! He is Risen!

Imagine your feelings if you were to hear those words from a reliable source? Will I see my dear person alive? What would this mean for me? How can this be? Do I believe?
Jesus died. It can be easily proven that he died. His friends would never have allowed him to be buried alive. His enemies would never have allowed his followers to proclaim his being alive without a complete search for his body through the ages. The government would follow the instructions for his death and burial as ordered or they would not be paid.
It is not as simple to prove the resurrection. Faith has to enter in-that is the sight of things unseen.But think about this.
If all your friends were at your wake and knew you had died, would they spend the rest of their lives-even dying or being tortured, proclaiming you were alive? Not only that would they quote the important things you said and do the important deeds you did in remembrance of you for years and years-even centuries?
These persons had to be utterly and totally convinced that Jesus was alive.
What does this mean for me? For us? Think about it! Meditate! Let these thoughts wash over you!
And have a happy and holy Easter Season!
