Greetings from the Risen Savior

Early hasten to the tomb where they laid his breathless clay;

All is solitude and gloom. Who has taken him away?

Christ is risen! He meets our eyes; Savior, teach  us so to rise.

(James Montgomery)

He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.” (Matthew 28:6-10 ESV)

  1. Cecelia- I was struck by Jesus greeting the woman who met him at the tomb, and his direction to meet him in Galilee with the other disciples. Jesus wants to greet us, to meet us and for us to see Him alive!
