“The angel said to the women, “Don’t be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, the one who was killed on the cross. But he is not here. He has risen from death, as he said he would. Come and see the place where his body was. And go quickly and tell his followers, ‘Jesus has risen from death. He is going into Galilee and will be there before you. You will see him there.’” Then the angel said, “Now I have told you.””
Matthew 28:5-7 ERV
Shout hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah because Jesus got up.
Today I would encourage you to get up too, anything that would keep you dead in your grave, shake it off and get up. If drugs have become a crutch for you, put it on the cross. If a broken relationship has you down, put it on the cross, if anger and depression is holding you back, put it on the cross. If lying and cheating is holding you back, put it on the cross. Whatever would have you believe you are unworthy of love, put it on the cross. Jesus grabbed that cross, carried it up a hill and climbed up there for you and me, they did not take his life, he gave it up so that we could be free. Free from condemnation, free from anything that would hold you down.
He left it all on the cross
