He Is Risen
"Why do you look for the living among the dead?"
This is what the angels asked when Mary showed up at the tomb wanting to see Jesus..
How incredible is it that our Savior has risen from the grave..
Died, was buried, and then a few days later, BAM "Hows it going guys.. you really thought i was gonna chill in that cold dark tomb for eternity?? NO THANK YOU!"
No other religion on earth could say that their faith, and their lives are based on someone who was whipped, spit on, mocked, NAILED to a cross, stabbed in the side, KILLED, and then rose from the grave..and that is a fact and a half right there...
Like a friend said, it is really really sad that we only celebrate such a momentous day for our faith, ONCE A YEAR.. i mean we are talking history here.. we are talking the impossible here.. we're talking Jesus.. i'm pretty sure he deserves alot more than just one lousy day in the beginning/middle/end of april [depending on this crazy year system] i mean i'm pretty sure we need to spend every day in awe of the fact that Jesus Christ rose from the grave.. particularly due to the fact that HE DID IT ALL FOR US!!! I mean dang, he went through that pain and suffering just so we wouldn't have to? He must have been outside his mind!! lol.. but really, this is no laughing matter, this is serious.. and i truly hope that you will spend your whole year praising God and thanking him for sending his Son for us, and not just one day a year..
incase ya'll are curious.. i spent Easter at home.. with my wonderful family=]
