“As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. And He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See My hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch Me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.”
Luke 24:36-39

He is risen! Jesus did not die on the cross, at least not in the way that we perceive death. It was not the end, but another beginning. He lives!

A minister once said, “He made the greatest comeback in history.”

I have a challenge for you. Look through the four gospels of the Bible to try to find a funeral service that Jesus preached.

Before you look hard, I will tell you that you can look through all four gospels, through the entire three years of His ministry – and even before – and you will never find one time that Jesus taught or preached a funeral sermon. He broke up every funeral He ever attended; He told everyone there was more, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.”
John 11:25-26

One of the most mysterious things in our Holy Bible is the sentence in First Corinthians. In chapter 15, verse 26, it says, “The last enemy to be destroyed is death.” Do you know why? Because as you, or your loved ones pass over the threshold we call death, the enemy you have been thinking about as the end of your physical body, you’ll say: “This isn’t the end at all! This is just another beginning. I knew that Jesus could do it because He proved that He could, but I’m surprised that I can do it too!”

Death is not a period, but a comma in life.

You’ll find the death is not the end at all, but a continuation and another beginning for you and those you love.

Nearly all of us have experienced loss. Perhaps at this time of the year we are thinking about that dear one we lost and we feel sadness. But I challenge you to be like Mary outside the tomb and realize that life is continuing. Allow Jesus this Easter – as no other Easter in your life – to be the first fruit of your knowledge and belief of continuing life. It will give you great, great comfort. It is a knowledge that will fortify you.

When Jesus was on the cross, there were many Roman centurions there. One stood at His feet and looked at His face and saw compassion and love for Him there. The Roman centurion realized that, truly, this was God’s son. And truly He was!

The words of Jesus in Matthew 28:20 are a promise to each of us today, “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

For Easter the emphasis shouldn’t be on that He died for us, or even that He IS living for us, BUT – ON US – LIVING FOR HIM!

Instead of getting sidetracked by the busyness of the day, I use these beloved images of Easter to remind me of the life of Jesus Christ.

It was the life of a message of the potential of the human race. It was the life of a theology of love, forgiveness, and all-inclusiveness.

It is an active theology of love that lives with Jesus instead of the old concept of “an eye for an eye.”

Jesus Christ lives a theology telling you that you are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. He came to uplift humanity and tell them of their potential as children of God.

His story has been called the greatest story ever told – and it is – because it is the story of not only of Jesus Christ, but his vision for each of us. Jesus Christ came to lift women and men out of self-imposed bondage, so that they could be set spiritually free.

This Easter, we are the spiritual pilgrims who come to worship at the temple.

We celebrate His life, and we celebrate our own rebirth of belief in what we can do as a child of God. We do have a new life in our awareness of God every time we consent to going higher through prayer, and then in our thinking and actions.

We ask ourselves this Easter, what would Jesus do? And we act accordingly.



I decree with undoubting faith, and acceptance:
Dear God, today, I remember and I praise the presence of Jesus Christ in my life, and in my Easter adventures.
I worship within myself by doing what Jesus Christ told me I could do and become.
I become “a sample of the great example.”
I celebrate the life of Jesus that continues this day. I vow to hold on to my belief.
I vow to have PEACE, because He has peace that can still a storm.
I vow to be LOVE, because He tells me this is the greatest commandment.
I vow to be JOYFUL, because He is joyful, and not plagued by the pressures and stress. I refuse to be brought down by the personal plagues of humanity.
I will live this day as if I am re-born (a new person) with the excitement, joy, and expectation of a child.
In Jesus Christ’s name (name means nature) … Amen

My life is a joy filled with delightful surprises.
