He is not here


Happy Easter!  

Remember today is not about chocolate, bunnies, or eggs, but that our Savior was crucified on Friday, died, was laid in the tomb with a huge stone rolled in front, on Sunday the stone was rolled away by an angel who told the women who came to check on Jesus: 

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

~Matthew 28:5-7

Please excuse the juke box in my head, but this is what just popped in there.  I feel it is very appropriate for today.

I serve a risen Savior
  He's in the world today.
I know that He is living,
  Whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy;
  I hear His voice of cheer;
And just the time I need Him
  He's always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives 


He walks with me and talks with me 

along life's narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives?

    He lives within my heart.

In all the world around me
  I see His loving care,
And though my heart grows weary,
  I never will despair;
I know that He is leading,
  Through all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing
  Will come at last.

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
  Lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs
  To Jesus Christ the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him,

  The Help of all who find,

None other is so loving,

  So good and kind
