Sunday, April 12, 2009 – Jesus is raised from the Dead – Matthew 28:1-10

Jesus has risen from the dead. When He rose He said He would take away our sins. Many people did not believe Jesus really rose so whoever did not believe had to be given proof.

Sunday morning Mary came and the tomb was empty. The grace clothes were still there and yet the tomb was empty, which meant Jesus’ was no longer there although the grave clothes had been folded up.

Jesus gave Thomas proof the following week. He told him to reach into Hisi side where they had jabbed a spear into His heart, at His side. Jesus showed him His hands where the nails went through. This happened a week after Easter to convince us that there is plenty of proof that Jesus is alive.

Dear Lord, we do not deserve what You have done for us. We should be treated like dirty rags. But You died on the cross for us and have taken away our sins.
