On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood before them. Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he is risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again." Luke 24:1-7
The women came. The stone was rolled away. They entered and found an empty tomb. Just like He said. Jesus Christ was gone.
Two men appeared, probably angels. He's not here, just like He said.
He's not here. He is risen.
The takeaway from this little story is simple: "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again."
That's what happened. That's the Good News.
Be encouraged as you celebrate the Risen Lord this Easter.
