And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He has risen; He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. Mark 16:6
May this Easter weekend remind us of Whose we are, what He did for us, and why. May we humbly bow before the King of kings, the Lord of lords, and know His victory over death and the power of His resurrection.
Father God, thank You for Your Son. You allowed His death to give me life. You allowed Him to suffer to show me that I am sinful. You allowed Jesus to walk this earth so that I would know You. You allowed Christ to show Your forgiveness so that I would know that I am forgiven. You allowed Jesus to love so that I would know that You loved me first. I am forgiven and loved and saved by Your mercy and by Your grace, Father. Thank You for Jesus. Thank You for His death that I would be able to face each tomorrow knowing that I, too, will have final victory over death because I asked for forgiveness, asked to be His, and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I am so very blessed, my LORD. In the Name of the Risen One. Amen.
