He is not here: for he is risen

Matthew 28:6 says, ““He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” This is Easter weekend and the time we pay special attention and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Death did not prevail over Him. Satan may have bruised His heel, but he did not win. The murderous hypocrisy of the ruling religious class did not triumph. Hallelujah! I know this is a busy weekend with family, special services, honoring the sacrament of communion and all the time and effort that entails. I discovered this Easter Medley from Anthem Lights a few years ago and I listen to it every year around this time.
