It does not come as a surprise to me that the disciples did not believe the women's report that Christ had risen. They knew that Jesus had been crucified. They knew he had been taken down from the cross and put into a heavily sealed and guarded tomb. But now the women claimed he was alive and the tomb was empty! Had their exhaustion clouded the facts?
Knowing this and them...Jesus appeared to them. Their joy must have been unspeakable. And certainly undescribable by me, some 2000 years later.
All their fears were now proven futile.
"Heaven unplugged the grave's power cord, and you and I have nothing to fear.
Death is disabled." -Max Lucado
All of their future was suddenly taken care of.
and guess what...
The same thing goes for each of us.
Easter blasts in and announces for every single one of us
Thanks Be To God!!!
In The Name of our RISEN and LIVING SAVIOR,
