On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?
He is not here; He has risen! -Luke 24:1-6
Maybe some might wonder – why does this story of a crucified Galilean matter? Does it make a difference for my life to know that He rose from the dead?
Is He alive today? Does He still move among us? Is His power still real?
Our lives answer this question with a resounding yes.
We know how Jesus’ resurrection changed the lives of men like Peter, John, and Paul…and I think it is time to share our own stories, too.
Yes, He is still transforming. Yes, He is still healing. Yes, He is still setting us free.
If your story hasn’t yet been changed by Jesus, please know that His love for you is never-failing…and He is the way to come home to the heart of God.
So – what is YOUR story? How would you finish this sentence?

We have the Good (best!) News today – the light has come into the world and the darkness has not (and will not!) overcome it. Jesus is alive…can we rise up and declare His good works among the nations? May we be a generation that will stand up and say – our God is real, He is good, and He is with us.
We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. –Rev. 12:11
