Millions of Christians worldwide celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and that is what Easter Sunday means to us. It represents Jesus Christ’s triumph over death and eternal life that is granted to all who believe in Him.
Today I’m sharing a page from my personal journal marking this special day. I thought about creating a page with an image of the stone rolled from Jesus’s tomb but decided to use the image of the cross as a reminder of His love for us and the price He paid for us sinners. -Stephanie Hopkins
Matthew 28: 1-6
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
