Remembering Jesus this Easter 2018

Remembering Jesus

After a major tragedy people have emotional reactions. Most remember the reaction after nine-eleven which was a patriotic display of the American flag. Often loved ones may leave a remembrance site with pictures and letters about the dead.  Families will remember loves ones with a funeral. The immediate reaction to the death of Jesus was sorrow and the routine of traditional burial care. When Jesus is discovered to be risen or resurrected from the dead the reactions are interesting. Mary full of sorrow believes someone has taken the body, until she talks with Jesus. The disciples inspect the empty tomb and the gospel of Mark records for us that they struggled with belief, until they talk with Jesus. The enemies of Jesus strived to cover up His resurrection through roomers and lies, until over 500 people talked with Jesus. This Easter how will you remember the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus? One of the very best ways to remember Jesus is to spend time with Jesus through personal meditation on the crucifixion passages. (Matthew 26-28, Mark 14-16, Luke 22-24, John 18-20) This Easter lets be intentional about remembering Jesus death, burial, and resurrection.
