In the time leading up to the crucifixion, there were Jesus’ last words. On Saturday there was a time of no words. And then on Sunday morning…there were fulfilled words:
“He is not here, He has risen just as He said.” – Matt. 28:6 NIV
No power on Earth or of the spiritual realm could stop Jesus from defeating sin and death. The mission was accomplished, and new life had come!
“Death where is your victory? Death where is your sting? Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” – 1 Cor. 15:55-57 HSCB
May your faith be in Him today. He has risen…just as He said!
