Bread for the Journey

 Why do you look for the living among the dead? 
 He is not here; he has risen! 
Luke 24:5-6 NIV



He's Alive!  That was the the message that the angels gave to the women who arrived at the empty tomb that first Easter morning.  Unbelievable...but true!

He's Alive!  That was the message the women raced off to tell the disciples. The disciples spent the rest of their days sharing this good news with all who would listen.

He's Alive!  That is the message for us today. But what does that mean for me...for you? It means that we have HOPE.  Death is not the end.  Just as Christ rose from the grave, we too can have new life.

Jesus said, “I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Revelation 1:18 NIV. 

I serve a risen Savior. Today I am celebrating his resurrection some 2,000 years later. Today I am singing...Christ the Lord is risen today My Redeemer lives. He's alive and I'm forgiven. Because He lives I can face tomorrow. I will rise.  

Today I am celebrating that 'He's Alive!'  That is the good news of Easter.

  1. I woke up in the night with the words of "I serve a Risen Savior" on my mind. Now I'm singing these other songs along with you...

  4. The song that runs through my mind is an old Sandy Patty tune "over and over like a trumpet underground, did the earth seem to pound "He is risen!" Over and over in a never ending round "He is Risen!" Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

  7. If I would come to this city again, I would be all over this event venue. We ordered Spinach artichoke dip at the server's suggestion and it was absolutely delicious.
