03 Sep Matthew 28:5-6

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said.”  

Can you imagine the scene? The women went to the tomb and the next thing they know they are talking to an angel, AND they find out Jesus is not there because He has risen from the dead! God sent Jesus to us to die for our sins. In other words Jesus had to satisfy God’s wrath toward sin. Jesus’ resurrection proved that God WAS satisfied. Jesus is the Son of God and His resurrection proves we can trust in the same Spirit that raised Him! Today, check out Romans 6:5 and make a decision to trust in Jesus!
