In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
Some of us do not live in hoplessness. Because Christ is risen all the promises that God has spoken belong to me. They are mine, not because I have kept some code, or refrained from some thing, but because of Christ and Christ alone.
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
I'm no longer in sin because Christ is raised. You too can experience freedom from sin. Jesus is the Christ, the Saviour, the answer to the problem with your relationship with the Eternal Father. If you believe in Him you have life in His name and you are His for ever.
