Rise from the dead
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
After Jesus’s body died, a man named Joseph put his body in a tomb. How wonderful! On the third day after his death, Jesus rose! The women that loved Jesus found the tomb empty. The angel reminded them that this was just as Jesus said, he had risen from the dead! So the women joyfully shared the good news with the disciples and even met the risen Jesus. Jesus set up a meeting to take place in Galilee with his disciples.
After Jesus rose from the dead, what did he tell the two women?
Jesus is an honest and trustworthy God. He once told his disciples that he would rise from the dead, and it came true! Sin and death did not keep him in the grave because he is the real God! We can love Jesus like the two women, follow him and tell everyone the good news that Jesus rose from the dead!
Dear Jesus, I praise you because you are a loving and powerful God! I thank you for rising from the dead. I’m willing to read the Bible and pray in order to meet you and hear your word. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!
