“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

He Is Risen!

 As The New Day Dawns over the Sea of Galilee

Early on Sunday morning, 
 as the new day was dawning
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb.

Suddenly there was a great earthquake! 
For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, 
rolled aside the stone, and sat on it.  

His face shone like lightning, 
and his clothing was as white as snow. 

The guards shook with fear when they saw him, 
and they fell into a dead faint.

  Then the angel spoke to the women. 
“Don’t be afraid!” he said. 

“I know you are looking for Jesus, 
who was crucified.  

He isn’t here!

He is risen 
from the dead, just as he said would happen. 

Come, see where his body was lying.
  
And now, go quickly and tell his disciples
 that he has risen from the dead, 
and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. 
 You will see him there. 

Remember what I have told you.”

 The women ran quickly from the tomb. 
They were very frightened but also 
filled with great joy, 
and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. 

Matthew 28:1-8 NLT
