He is Risen


" As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ” - Mark 16:5-7

Today is, perhaps, the most important date on the Calendar. It's Easter Sunday. And it's not the specific date -- April 16 -- that matters, because the date of Easter changes every year. It's what it means. I means He is Risen. It means Jesus, the Savior of the World, has defeated death. It means we, too, who believe have defeated death.

It is a cause for celebration. It is a day to remember. It is a day to be grateful.

He is Risen, and that changes everything.

"Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night

Sing it, o death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
Our God is not dead, He's alive, He's alive

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave"

-"Christ is Risen," Matt Maher
