The angel told the women who approached the Master's tomb. “He is not here, He has risen, just as He said.”
Christianity is the only religion that serves a risen Lord. We don't have a grave we can point to because Jesus Christ arose from the tomb to re-enter His heavenly home.
I remember hearing the story of two first century believers meeting. It goes something like this:
First believer: He is risen.
Second believer: He is risen, indeed.
One year I chose to greet people with whom I worshiped with the words of the first believer. I got different responses-even one young adult man answered with, “Hallelujah.” Only one man, my Sunday School teacher gave the reply I expected.
As we move from Lent through Easter to Pentecost, let's all remember He Is Risen, He Is Risen, Indeed.
