He is not here; He has risen!
From Luke 24:6
As I got up from the pew to exit the church, I noticed a banner displayed in a corner to my right.
An empty tomb.
A stone rolled away.
A dazzling light.
Jesus is alive!
He is victorious over death.
He is victorious over all evil.
What does that mean for us?
If Jesus is standing with us, what power is there that can defeat us?
In every moment–when trouble comes–Jesus is standing with us.
We must remember: Jesus is victorious!
