"'Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going to see you before you go to Galilee; there you will see him.'" (Matthew 28) So the angel spoke to the two women who came to the tomb.
The angel, speaking directly to the women, speaks to us as well. "Do not be afraid, for I know the Jesus that you (we) seek who was crucified. He is not here. He has risen." We seek Christ. We know Christ. He has risen, and this gives us eternal life. Do not be afraid.
Christ has created a clean heart within us. God will not cast us away from his presence. Because of Christ, we have been restored, and God's Holy Spirit comes to us to give us faith an strengthen and renew our faith.
He is risen! He is risen indeed, hallelujah!
