Words That Change Everything
God Allows U-Turnsa story by Michelle Pearson
Here are three words we commonly hear: Grace, Faith, Hope. Faith and hope is what enabled Donna to more than just go through the motions in life. Although we may not always connect faith with the story of women going to the tomb on the first Easter, nevertheless they went. Never mind the darkness or the stone; it's hard to even imagine what was going through their heads. Their world had been turned upside down. Before their eyes Jesus had been arrested, condemned to death, violently and brutally treated and executed. They heard His last breath, and watched as His body was taken down and buried. Now three days later, it's dark and there's a stone . . . and yet they go.
But then they find the stone rolled away and the tomb empty! Even more startling the angel and his words, "Do not be afraid. You are looking for Jesus but He is not here; He is risen, just as He said." These words change everything. The joy that began that morning would fill their hearts and lives as they proclaimed the good news to others. The angel's words have changed everything for us too. Trouble (however it be named in your life) and also guilt and sin, all such things Christ has overcome. Jesus is risen! Your sin is gone! Death has been destroyed! Therefore don't stop looking into the empty tomb! And don't stop telling others what you have come to see.Pastor Kelly Mitteis
