Resurrection Sunday

Most people call this Easter Sunday, but I, I call it Resurrection Sunday.  Because of what happened on this morning several thousand years ago, the fact of an empty tomb, I have faith in a God that is able to do anything. 

Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."   Luke 18:27 NIV
Mt 26:32

And Jesus said to his disciples:
"But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee."  Mt. 26:32  NIV

The Deity that I serve says what He means and does what He says.  He has done something that no other "deity" has done: He has risen from the dead.  On that morning, the women came looking for the body of a dead man, they met an angel: 

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.   He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead . . . '"  Mt. 28:5-7  NIV

And this rising was not only the proof of his Deity, but the down payment for what could happen if we just believe.  He has paid the price so you and I can raise from our wrong doings and our sins and He can put us on a new plain to start anew.   This is the basis of my faith.  Spiritually, a way has been made for for me to be clean of my sins and I will always be grateful for His love and His sacrifice.  And best of all, He has paved the way for me to know Him  because He is alive!

He is risen!  He is risen, indeed!
