We say the words, “He is Risen”, every single Easter. Passing by each other in church, calls to family, chats with neighbors all end in the same way for believers, “He is Risen”. But day after day the words just come out of our lips as habit, missing meaning.
Can you imagine the excitement of the women that first saw Jesus? Their hearts racing and pumping because His promises had come true! Because the one who had come to save them had lived up to His side of the bargain, and then some. In no way would their conversation with other about what they had seen been mediocre, barely excited, or out of habit.
I can only imagine them wanting to scream it at the top of their lungs. Filling the air with the proclamation that the prophecy had been fulfilled!
This Easter I’m going to challenge myself to find the same excitement, the same joy, the same love that those women had when they first laid eyes on their risen Savior. Will you join me?
Happy Easter from my entire candy filled, sugar hyped up family because HE HAS RISEN!! Death is defeated! The way has been made!
