Easter Monday is a special day to continue rejoicing and celebrating our Saviour’s resurrection from death to life. I had the joy of recently returning from a life changing trip to Israel which included a deeply moving visit to what is highly regarded as the Garden Tomb. I had the experience of walking up to the tomb and entering in. I am excited to report that the tomb is indeed empty!!! I know that we all know it is empty. I knew that before going in, but it is incredible to actually see the empty tomb. I can now say that I have seen the place where Jesus was laid with my own eyes and the greatest miracle of all is that there is nothing there!
“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: “The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.” Then they remembered his words.” Luke 24: 5 – 8
Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Son of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing ye heavens and earth reply, Alleluia!
