He is Risen!

“He is risen. He is not here.” Mark 16:6

Easter isn’t about egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, or that yearly visit to church.

It’s about Christ’s resurrection. He is Risen!

Jesus Christ, the Son of God came to earth, born of the Virgin Mary. He healed the sick, performed miracles, and raised the dead. He gave up His life to die a wretched death on the cross because He loved us. He bore our sorrows and transgressions. Jesus Christ paid our debt of sin. Then he was buried in the tomb but rose from the dead.

He is Risen!

If you are looking for Jesus, He is not here. He is not in the tomb, or even in the church you visit.

After His Resurrection, He returned to Heaven. He comes and lives in us when we repent of our sins, ask forgiveness, and believe. We invite Him into our lives.

Christ the Lord has risen, so one day we will rise and be with him for all eternity.

He is Risen!
