He is not here

“You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here." -angel 

It's Easter morning.  The most glorious day in Christianity.  The day we remember and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.  It is the defining event of the Christian faith.  If it's true then Jesus is God. On this event in time and history hangs the validity of the Christian faith.

One pastor wrote, 

"The resurrection is not merely important to the historic Christian faith; without it, there would be no Christianity.  It is the singular doctrine that elevates Christianity above all other world religions." –Adrian Rogers

Another man, a lawyer and skeptic who tried to disprove Christianity, said,

"The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity. If the resurrection did not take place, then Christianity is a false religion. If it did take place, then Christ is God and the Christian faith is absolute truth." -Henry Morris

In a world looking for God there is one stop on the quest that any serious person must make- the empty tomb.

He is risen!
