Happy Easter

John 20:4-6
4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

Today, I thought about how the disciples must have looked running to the tomb. I can imagine the shock on their face when they saw the tomb was empty. All that was left was the linen he had been wrapped in. They wanted to know who had taken Jesus, but they soon found out that he had risen. Today is Easter. I know everyone has had the fun of hunting eggs and going to dinners. That is all good. Just don’t forget what Easter is truly about. It is the celebration of Jesus conquering death. It is the celebration of us being able to make it to heaven because he paid the price. We celebrate Easter because Jesus has risen, the tomb is empty, and through Christ we have salvation.
