Resurrection Morning

Open Your Bible

Mark 16:1-20, 1 Corinthians 15:12-28, 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, Revelation 21:3-4

He was gone. 

How quickly life had changed for them. The women were bringing spices to the tomb of the one who taught them, walked with them, healed them. They had watched as He was laid in the tomb, and now they were coming back to tend His body. This was their reality now.

It was resurrection morning, but they didn’t know it yet. They arrived at the tomb, prepared to see their crucified Lord for the last time. Instead, an angel appeared, giving them the best news. “You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen!” (Mark 16:6). The time for mourning had ended, and it was now morning, in every sense of the word. 

He has risen. All of our faith hinges on this truth (1 Corinthians 15:17). Because of Jesus’s death and resurrection, God has forgiven our sins and welcomed us into His great family. He invites us to encounter Him daily, as His Spirit dwells in us and produces fruit in us. Today, we rejoice over all we gain because of Jesus’s resurrection. 

He has risen. The gospel isn’t just good news for today. The reality of Jesus’s resurrection also gives us hope for all of our tomorrows. As we navigate life on this side of His resurrection, we live in anticipation of His return. This means that no matter what circumstance life presents us with, we can take comfort in the fact that our Savior is with us, always. We can take heart, because there’s more to this life than…well, this life (1 Corinthians 15:29). Even though we experience hardness and deep grief along with the everyday sighs of life, we have a rich and vibrant hope.

He has risen. His resurrection guarantees our own. Not even death can change that! The risen Savior will return for us, His beloved people. God fulfilled His promise to send a Savior to redeem us, and we can rest assured our risen Savior will return for us. On that day, there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain (Revelation 21:4). He will wipe away every tear from our eyes. He will dwell with us, His people, completely and forever. It is good news, indeed!

    This passage is what all of our salvation hinges on- the risen Saviour. If Jesus hadn’t risen all the pain and torture from the garden and into the cross would have meant nothing. But each step Jesus took from Garden of Gethsemane to

    I’ve been up since 4:30am to prepare for our church sunrise service. It was done on a beautiful hilltop. We all sat in our cars. It was a bit cloudy, so didn’t see the sun come up really, but who cares. Just celebrating Christ’s resurrection has been wonderful. It’s been a full blessed day.
    I too have children who don’t know the Lord. Young grandchildren also. I am praying that the message of Easter would reach them and all of your loved ones also, dear sisters. Praise God, His Son has risen to save us all. Hallelujah!

    This day has always given me a bit of guilt knowing he died for me. The pain he endured, but the blessed life he has given me. How can I ever repay him. Thank you Dear Lord for all that you have done for my family and myself. Thank you for loving me so much that your gave yourself. Thank you Lord for always always walking by my side. Amen

    I’m outside this morning enjoying the sunshine and meditating on the truth of Jesus, his death and resurrection. I am trying to wrap my head around it all! We are free because of his sacrifice.

    On that marvelous day when the last trumpet sounds just as described in today’s reading and in 1 Thessalonians 4. We will see Jesus coming back for us in the clouds. All will see him the Bible says. That’s when we know that the true Jesus is here … His Second Coming. When we all finally get to join Him in Heaven. Where no sin will follow because of today – Easter. The Cross. Jesus taking on our suffering. Thank You my great Redeemer! For I am not worthy but am oh so grateful and thankful! I love you Jesus!

  46. Mom to many says:

    What a difference a day makes. From despair to joy, fear to hope, death to life. O Lord help me to remember it is finished and to rest in your completed work on the cross.

    Bless you sisters today. He is Risen.

  47. SarahJoy says:

    This morning after a night of grieving what has been a hard 12+ months, with new difficulties ahead with our “tweenager,” the truth feels so important. (And I Corinthians 15:58 felt like a hug and a call forward.)


    Hallelujah! Christ is risen. He is risen indeed!

  48. Churchmouse says:

    My husband and I are in Alabama spending Easter with our daughter, son-in-law and two month old granddaughter. Looking out our hotel window we see an Easter sunrise service just ending on the hillside across from us. A wooden cross has been erected and approximately two hundred followers of Jesus have gathered. Tears come to my eyes as I think of Christians all over this earth celebrating our risen Savior in a variety of locales, in a variety of traditions and under various political situations. It is because He lives that His followers endure, press on and faithfully proclaim the Gospel. Hallelujah! There is so much evil in this world yet there is a far, far greater Hope. I kneel in solidarity this Easter morn with believers everywhere. Good and faithful servants all. He is alive! Hallelujah!

  49. Lauren Barr says:

    @jenn the reply was meant to show up under your post. Not sure that it did.

  50. Lauren Barr says:

    Praying for your daughter’s eyes, ears and heart to be fully opened to His love for her. The tv series The Chosen really brings the Bible to life and has spurred on many conversations in our house. You can watch it for free from the app. Season 2 episode 1 comes out tonight!

  51. Linda Gilbow says:

    Glory glory hallelujah, He is risen!

  52. Sarah says:

    I lost a friend to cancer this week, and this morning I have such a clear vision of her, smiling the biggest smile, dancing in Heaven, saying, ‘THIS IS AWESOME! I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL YOU GUYS ALL SEE THIS!” Death cannot keep us. He is risen, indeed.

  67. Jenn says:

    He is risen! Yesssss! Happy Easter to all of the SRT community. Thank you for your comments, they sometimes reach me more than the reading. I love you all and I hope you all have an amazing blessed day in remembrance of the sacrifice. We have outdoor service today and then we will watch the Passion of the Christ. I do this every year Easter weekend and this will be the first year that my daughter has finally agreed to watch it with me. She is 21 and while she admits to know that God is real, she struggles with believing the Bible. Prayers for her would be much appreciated. I love this community. I love that we can ask for prayer and know it will be done. I love reading each and every prayer and praying over you all. This is truly a joy and a blessing.

    1. Deborah D says:

      Jenn, we too have family members we are praying for salvation.

    2. Deborah D says:

      Jenn, praying for your daughter right now!
