He is Risen!

     As I awake on this beautiful Easter morning, I cannot help but be overcome with joy and gratefulness. Besides the birth of our Savior, this is the most important day in history. Jesus has defeated hell and death, and because of that great miracle we have the hope and promise of eternal life. Is that not something to get excited about?! I can only imagine the scene on that first day of the week when Mary Magdalene went to the tomb to find that it was empty. At first, there was a sense of panic because she thought someone had taken Him. Then Jesus reveled Himself to her and she fell face down in worship at His nail pierced feet. What an incredible life changing moment. Jesus has risen and we no longer have to fear death. So with that being said, I will say together with all the saints, "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" (1 Cor. 15:55)
