Daily Fountain 2017 - He Is Not Here, He Is Risen





Sunday April 16
Easter Sunday

Bible Reading:     Matt. 28: 1 - 15

Topic:         He is Not Here, He Is Risen

Early morning of the first day of the week after the Sabbath, Mary Magdalene and the other women came to the tomb and it was EMPTY.

The seal had been broken, the large stone laid over the tomb rolled away and the Body of the Lord that was laid in the tomb was no longer there.

God had caused a violent earthquake and commissioned an Angel to roll back the stone and make way for the resurrection.

The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the central fact of the Christian faith, because as Paul said, without the resurrection, our faith is worthless; we will still be in our sins (1 Cor. 15: 15) and there will be no Christian Church today.

Thank God Jesus rose from the dead for our salvation and justification.

Anyone who puts his/her faith in the risen Christ will have eternal life.

Have you taken advantage of the salvation He offers?
Have your sins been washed by the Blood He shed on Calvary?

If your answer is No, then you can do so right now and really have a reason to celebrate this Easter.

Remember, He died to save you

Prayer:

O Lord, may the Power of the resurrection quicken anything in me that is dead, Amen

Memory verse:   Matt. 28 : 6

"He is not here; for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay"
