He is Risen!

He is risen! He is risen, indeed! 

These words comprise one of the oldest and most hope-filled greetings among followers of Christ Jesus. The greeting is based upon the retelling of the events on the road to Emmaus by two of the disciples (Luke 24:13 – 35). As these two retell the events, they declare to all the apostles and the other disciples gathered that “the Lord is risen indeed!” (Luke 24:34) 

But the question for us today is not whether the words spoken are true, but whether we have truly come to understand what those words mean. It’s so much more than just stating that “Jesus is alive.” To be alive is good, but all men live and then die. When we declare that “He is risen!”, we are proclaiming the truth that Jesus died and now lives. He tasted death once for all on the cross and then triumphed over death declaring the victory! This victory over death is why we have hope today! 

Eastmont Family, our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, is risen! He is risen, indeed!
