Easter Son Rise

Easter Son Rise by Keith Cook

"He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, "The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again." Luke 24:6, 7

"Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things." Luke 24:45-48

Can you imagine that first Easter morning? Long before there were Easter eggs, fancy baskets, chocolate bunnies, and Easter lilies there was an actual event that changed the course of humanity forever.

On that day that Jesus miraculously rose from the dead, the angels rejoiced while the demons trembled. Salvation had come as death, Hell, and the grave were defeated.

As the sun came up, just as it had every day since creation, it now shown on a Risen Lord. The reflection of the sun on the Son proved He was alive and not a ghost. The reflection of the Son to His disciples proved that each of them, and every man, had reason for putting their hope and trust in Jesus, the Messiah.

Let the "Son Rise" in your life.

1. Seek Him while there is time.

2. Open up your heart and life to Him so that He can give you life forever.

3. Never forget what He has done for you.

4. Reflect on His will for your life.

5. Instruct all around you how they can come to Jesus.

6. Seek opportunities to serve Jesus in acts of compassion, divine appointments, and in spiritual activities.

7. Enjoy the new life in Christ that you have been given.

Jesus Christ has risen and we celebrate this fact today! Move from the cross, past the empty tomb, and now share the good news that Jesus is alive.

He is alive! Rejoice. Son of God rise in our lives today!
