He is Risen
He is not here. (Mark 16:6 - NKJV)
On this most beautiful crisp Autumn morning, I can hear doves singing in the trees just outside my quiet time room, there is not a breath of wind blowing outside. It's like the angels from Heaven are reminding me as I sit very quietly, that all is well, for "Christ has risen, He has risen indeed". This was an early Christian greeting on resurrection Sunday by the early Believers.
No, He is not in the grave, He is very much alive and I can feel His presence with me as I write this letter to you.
Having had the great privilege of going to Israel many times, I've been to the tomb, and it's empty, there is nothing in it, no bones, no grave clothes, nothing! But yet we can visit King David's tomb and his remains are still very much there.
So enjoy this most victorious holiday time knowing that if Christ Jesus be before us then no one will stand against us (Romans 8:31).
Happy and blessed Easter,
Angus and Jill Buchan.
