The angels at the tomb on the first Easter morning asked Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, “Why do you seek the living one among the dead?" For us, it makes all the difference in the world whether we conceive of Jesus Christ as merely a historical figure, who lived more than 2,000 years ago, or experiencing Him as the Resurrected and Risen Lord, who accompanies us now, leading us to our destiny.
It would not be Easter for me without the late Keith Green's "Easter Song." He is Risen and the implications for us are huge, unimaginably huge, the biggest news in the history of world, which is why it is called "Gospel," which means Good News! A blessed and joyful Easter day and holy season to everyone.
