He is no longer here...

What an amazing time of remembrance and celebration is upon us! 

He is no longer in the grave for he has risen.

Mat 28:1  Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.
Mat 28:2  And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.
Mat 28:3  His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.
Mat 28:4  And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men.
Mat 28:5  But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
Mat 28:6  He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.
Mat 28:7  Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you."
Mat 28:8  So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Mat 28:9  And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him.
Mat 28:10  Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
Mat 28:11  While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place.
Mat 28:12  And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers
Mat 28:13  and said, "Tell people, 'His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.'Mat 28:14  And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble."Mat 28:15  So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.Mat 28:16  Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.Mat 28:17  And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted.Mat 28:18  And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.Mat 28:19  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,Mat 28:20  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Thankful! Little more do I have to give this great savior than my gratitude and humble heart. But I am so very thankful.
