Biblical Phrases — He Has Risen!

Day 2213: May Jesus be your guide today and every day!

Scripture: He is not here, for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where He lay.  Matthew 28:6

Thoughts/questions: Nope, I didn’t accidentally post an Easter devotional. This is one of the many 2/3 word Bible phrases we are looking at in this series.

We’ve all lost someone important to us. We’ve gone to the funeral and grieved along with others. But we’ve NEVER commented a few days later, “So and so has risen.” That’s not going to happen!

But with Jesus, it did!!! Risen – He has risen! In order for my Dad (may he not rest in peace, but may he run and leap with joy in heaven) to overcome the grave, Jesus had to pave the way. Every day, not just at Easter, we should marvel at these three unbelievable words – He has risen!!!

Suggested prayer: Lord Jesus, You went thru so much, but in the end, You conquered death!!! I am overwhelmed . . .
