Daily Fountain 2017 - An Empty Tomb







Tuesday April 18

Bible Reading:     Luke. 24: 1 - 12

Topic:         An Empty Tomb

In this version of the resurrection story, two men met the women with the glorious news of Christ's resurrection.

In contrast to the mournful shadows of the tomb, their garments were brilliant and seemed to illuminate the tomb.

They asked the terrified women: 'why are you looking for the living among the dead? He is not here, He is risen'.

Even though He had told them of the Cross and the Resurrection, they didn't understand the message or the meaning of His Words - until now!

Like the women, we are often very slow to understand and appropriate all that God has promised us in His Word. Be encouraged to believe that God will always keep His Word.

Jesus Christ conquered death, the grave and hell forever and continues to give eternal life to all those who place their faith in Him.

In 1 Cor. 15: 12- 15, Paul tells us that if Jesus hadn't risen from the dead, we all would have reason to grieve.

If you are trapped in sin and see no avenue of escape, the good news is that Jesus died and rose again to set you free.

If you come to Him, He will be there to hear you, to help and to save you.

Jesus is Alive!

Prayer:

Thank You Father for the proof that Jesus lives, Amen

Memory verse:   Luke. 24: 7

"Saying, the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and the third day rise again"
