On entering the tomb they saw a young man
sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe,
and they were utterly amazed.
He said to them, “Do not be amazed!
You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified.
He has been raised; he is not here. – Mark 16: 5 – 6
Today is Easter Sunday.
And today the Church throughout the world proclaims with a loud shout of victory and joy:
The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!
What a glorious, happy day for us. Our Saviour is risen.
The same Saviour Whom we mourned on Good Friday, when all seemed hopeless.
This is the Lord Whom we waited upon on Holy Saturday, when all was empty and somewhat eerie as He laid in the tomb.
But Alleluia for today, the day of His Resurrection.
For it is just as He promised…
For it was impossible for death to hold Him captive (Acts 2: 24).
And so on this most holy day of Easter we sing and shout and praise: Alleluia!
What more can we say? How much more can one add to describe the saving work of Jesus?
How amazing indeed is the Father’s love for us.
As we go through the Easter Vigil and all the readings from the Old Testament until the time of Jesus, we see how God in His infinite Wisdom prepared the world for salvation through His Son.
From the fall of Adam, to His call to Abraham, through His deliverance from bondage as demonstrated through Moses, at all times, in all places, God showed His wondrous love for us.
Today as we rejoice in our Lord’s Resurrection, we thank Him for calling us into His Kingdom.
Loving Father, today with hearts filled with wondrous praise, we celebrate the Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus.
Fill us with a new outpouring of Your Spirit, even the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, let Him give life to our mortal bodies, and forever may we acclaim Your great and wondrous love.
Sing alleluia, the Lord is risen,
He is risen indeed, alleluia!
Always & Forever,
To The Lamb.
With all my love.
