Rejoice! He Has Risen!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!

It is early in the morning of the third day
and the tomb is empty.
 
The huge stone has been rolled up and away out of its groove in the ground.
 
 
The Roman seal has been broken.
 
The guard (consisting of 15-30 men) felt the earthquake and saw the angel.
They “became as dead men” Matthew 28:4
 
 
Inside, the tomb is empty.
All that remains is the burial cloth.
 
 
The two Mary’s have come to anoint the body. Mark 24:1
 
 
The angel tells the women “He is not here, but is risen!” Luke 24:6
 
 
As they run to tell the disciples Jesus appears to them 
and He says 
“Rejoice….go and tell.”

And Still He Comes! (Palm Sunday)

Rejoice! Sundays Coming

reflectgrace

On this day Christians celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Jesus.
 
Jesus enters into the city of Jerusalem knowing what lies ahead.
He knows!
 
Jesus knows He will soon be facing the cross.
And still He comes! 
 
He knows of the humiliation.
And still He comes! 
 
He knows the pain and death that awaits Him.
And still he comes!
 
He knows!
 
He knows He must endure the cross to set us free.
He knows He must endure the cross to redeem us.
 
So He comes!

The Good Shephard


Psalm 135:5
Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His Name, for it is pleasant.

The Lord is good. He is tenderhearted.
His mercies are new every morning.

Lamentations 3:23
They are new every morning
Great is your faithfulness

He will watch our coming and going.
It is the Lord Who cares for us.

Psalm 121:8
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your
coming in from this time forth,
and even forevermore.

Even through the night He is with us. As we sleep and rest,
the Lord does not. He remains vigilant, ever watchful.
We can trust in Him to be with us and give us
sweet sleep.

Psalm 121:3-4
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

Proverbs 3:24
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
