When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see Him, just as He told you." ~Mark 16:1-7
Easter Sunday. Resurrection Sunday. Whatever you choose to call it, it's a day of joyful celebration among Christians worldwide.
Raised from the dead by the power of God's Holy Spirit, Jesus stepped out of the tomb, alive once more, victorious over sin and death. Victorious for us.
Jesus is indeed King of Kings and LORD of lords, Prince of peace, Savior of the world.
Do you know Him?
"You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we don’t know where You are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you really knew Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him.” ~ John 14:4-7
This is an absolutely wonderful video rendition of Dr. S.M. Lockridge's sermon, entitled 'The Seven Way King.' May it bring you to tears and cheers
