Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been taken away from the entrance. She went running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
Then Peter and the other disciple went to the tomb. The two of them were running, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and saw the linen cloths, but he did not go in. Behind him came Simon Peter, and he went straight into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there and the cloth which had been around Jesus’ head. It was not lying with the linen cloths but was rolled up by itself. Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in; he saw and believed. (They still did not understand the scripture which said that he must rise from death.)
The horrible crucifixion ended with Christ’s death on Friday. The glorious resurrection dawned on Sunday with an empty tomb, and a risen Savior.
Tomorrow, by our calendars, we remember the crucifixion. Five short days after Jesus rode into Jerusalem to the praises of men. On Sunday, we will celebrate Easter. Resurrection Day. A day of hope for mankind.
May we never forget the price it cost Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior, for the opportunity and privilege we have to be called a child of the King.
I wish you well.
