It is my pleasure and sheer joy to present to you why Easter is important. Without this priceless truth, we are above all men “to be pitied.” (1 Corinthians 15:19) Because HE lives I am free to live and love Him!!! I pray your Easter is blessed and full of Him.

The Resurrection: Matthew 28

1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. 5The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” 8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Matthieu 28

1Après le sabbat, à l’aube du premier jour de la semaine, Marie de Magdala et l’autre Marie allèrent voir le sépulcre. 2Et voici, il y eut un grand tremblement de terre; car un ange du Seigneur descendit du ciel, vint rouler la pierre, et s’assit dessus. 3Son aspect était comme l’éclair, et son vêtement blanc comme la neige. 4Les gardes tremblèrent de peur, et devinrent comme morts. 5Mais l’ange prit la parole, et dit aux femmes: Pour vous, ne craignez pas; car je sais que vous cherchez Jésus qui a été crucifié. 6Il n’est point ici; il est ressuscité, comme il l’avait dit. Venez, voyez le lieu où il était couché, 7et allez promptement dire à ses disciples qu’il est ressuscité des morts. Et voici, il vous précède en Galilée: c’est là que vous le verrez. Voici, je vous l’ai dit. 8Elles s’éloignèrent promptement du sépulcre, avec crainte et avec une grande joie, et elles coururent porter la nouvelle aux disciples. 9Et voici, Jésus vint à leur rencontre, et dit: Je vous salue. Elles s’approchèrent pour saisir ses pieds, et elles se prosternèrent devant lui. 10Alors Jésus leur dit: Ne craignez pas; allez dire à mes frères de se rendre en Galilée: c’est là qu’ils me verront.
