Jesus is now taken down from the cross and is placed in his cave-tomb and an enormous boulder is pushed in front to cover the entrance and guards are placed outside of his tomb to guard Jesus' grave. Now a couple of days pass and Mary comes to visit Jesus' grave to find that he is gone, disappeared. She asks the guards what had happened and they were clueless. Next, and angel comes to talk to Mary and tells her that Jesus has been raised from the dead, he is resurrected, He is alive. But How do we know this is true? How do we know that someone didn't come and steal Jesus' body and then spread a rumor that he was alive? We know from the Bible. After Jesus' resurrection he showed himself to his apostles and numerous people in the Bible.
This story is true. This story is incredible. Jesus was dead, but now he is alive. This changes everything, this changes the whole world. We do not worship a God that is dead and buried in a cave, but we worship a living God. We worship a God who conquered death, a God who lives with us right now no matter where we are.
Jesus was faced with a choice, suffer and die for us and the world or to continue to live his own life, sinless, in complete unison with God, perfect. He chose to suffer and die and sacrifice himself for sinners, for us. Now we have a choice to make, to live for ourselves and for the temporary things of this world or to live for a savior who died for us, to give our life to Jesus Christ. What choice will you make? I have chosen to give my life to Jesus Christ and have and still am experiencing life to the fullest. You can do the same, Jesus made his choice now it is time for you to make yours.
