Resurrection Day

On Friday we talked about God leaving Jesus alone. That was bad news! But the good news is that God did not stay separated from Jesus. God took the sins that Jesus accepted and erased them forever. Then God and Jesus were together again.
Today is Resurrection Day — the day when we especially remember that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day. That was the completion of God’s plan. Because Jesus died, we can have our sins forgiven. And, because Jesus rose again, we can have the hope of eternal life with God in heaven.
I hope that you will take time today to be happy! Our Bible Reading says in verse 8 that the women who left Jesus’ tomb “were afraid, but they were also very happy.” How can you be happy? Think about what Jesus did for you. Think about what it will be like to live with Him forever.
If you are happy that Jesus died and rose again, I am sure you will want to share that Good News with someone today!
