He is risen.

Imagine for a moment how it must have felt to have been a grief and guilt-stricken disciple, trudging out to Jesus’  grave in the early morning, expecting to find a sealed tomb filled with a decaying body . . . and be met by a mighty, awe-inspiring angel?

“He is not here. He is risen” (Matthew 28:6).

Think about those words for a moment. What a startling, shocking turn of events! And two thousand years later, it continues to astonish.

He is risen.

Three little words. Three little words that changed the world forevermore. Three little words that changed us forevermore!

He is risen. He is risen indeed!

Here’s a beautiful rendition of that startling moment experienced by the disciples, sung by Dolly Parton. (Sorry for the 8-second advertisement at the beginning! But it’s worth it to listen to the song.)

He is alive!
