Holy Week Reflections – Resurrection Sunday

He Is Risen!  He is risen indeed!  And for centuries the empty tomb has stood as the landmark event in human history.  No greater day had there ever been and will there ever be until the King of King and Lord of Lord returns to bring His Kingdom to ultimate fruition.  Today I have a picture of the resurrection of Jesus as the great exclamation point over the heavens.  God raising His Son from the grave put the definitive mark on all of His promises made from the beginning that He is who He said He was – THE I AM!  Alive in the present, not a past tense ‘once was’ or a future tense ‘will be’ but Jesus is alive and victorious over the world’s system, Satan’s schemes, and my sin.  Jesus is the great AMEN to the work of God throughout human history.  In recognizing the redemption work of Jesus we all say YES and AMEN to all that God said to mankind because He has put the grand exclamation point out there for all to see (2 Corinthians 1:19-20).  It is finished and victory has been won.  The empty tomb leaves us with anything but emptiness for those who believe.  It guarantees for us the ultimate victory, our glory, His return!  I run to the tomb this morning and I behold that ‘He is not here, He has risen just as He said!’
