EMPTY GRAVE – FULL HEARTS

ART & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER

John 20-6-7 “Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,  And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.”

The moments after finding that Jesus had overcome the grave must have been overwhelming for the disciples.  All the anxiety of deserting the Savior and doubting Him must have choked them, but to see with their own eyes that He no longer was held by the chains of death must have put them on cloud nine.

We are fortunate to have it all written down for us in God’s Word, but they had nothing to go on except raw emotion, which had been torn to shreds in the past few days.  Still the evidence was right there.   There was no physical remnant of His presence except for the empty clothes that He was buried in.

Peter and John wasted no time in returning to tell the others what they had seen.  This wasn’t just another miracle.  This was God’s holy hand fulfilling every promise He had given to His people from the day they decided to disobey Him.  Their despair turned into pure excitement and they couldn’t wait to tell others the news.

As we remember those empty grave clothes scattered there, let’s never forget that God never makes a promise that He won’t deliver on.  He has promised us eternal life if we ask for forgiveness and believe that He has paid the ransom.  When I die, I  am confident of that truth and the grave and hell will never touch me.  Now I can’t wait to let everyone know about this perfect love.  This is good news for everyone.

HE IS RISEN!  HE IS RISEN INDEED!

A joyous Easter to all of you.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
