"Now, after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you see Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.'" Matthew 28:1 - 6
On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead, victorious over death and sin.
In Luke, the angel asks, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen." 24:5
The victory was for us. Today we observe that victory which Jesus delivered. Where do we go to seek the living Jesus? Where do we look when we are in need? Today, we pray we seek the living Christ who died for our sins and rose again to give us everlasting life.
