Dailies- In His Word
Resurrection Sunday Observed
Happy Easter!
When the women came to the tomb the third day as is how things would have been done, the women found it was not as they expected.
Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee,  saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ” And they remembered His words.  Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.  It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who told these things to the apostles. And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them.  But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened. Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.”  But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit.  And He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? But while they still did not believe for joy, and marveled, He said to them, “Have you any food here?”
 Luke 24:1-53
Peter runs off to check it out, to be sure of what they said. It was so and later the Lord Jesus comes Himself to show that yes He is alive! They had not dealt with this kind of thing other than Lazarus, and it was a bit strange. So Jesus asks them for food! As He eats with them again they are amazed but they believe! Today as you enjoy food with family, friends, and whomever; think about how Jesus asked for food to show He was alive and enjoy it! Rejoice! He is risen! Praise the Lord!
Heavenly Father, Thank you! Just that, thank You for everything! In Jesus name, amen.
