Resurrection can be defined as a revival or rising up from the dead. The idea of something coming back to life after being dead is truly amazing, a miracle. Yet, this is exactly what happened! God sent his only Son to Earth so that he would be among us to show us the way to God. He then paid the ultimate price for our sins. He died for us, then He rose again! We remember this sacrifice and praise Him. I am forever grateful to God for sending His Son to die for us.
Matthew 28:1-20 NIV
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. Come and see
the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has
risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you
will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the
tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped
his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.
Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city
and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. When
the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave
the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, “You are to say, ‘His
disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were
asleep.’ If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and
keep you out of trouble.” So the soldiers took the money and did as they
were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the
Jews to this very day. Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the
mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they
worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All
authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and
make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey
everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the
very end of the age.”"
