“He is not here; for He has been raised, as He said.”

—Matthew 28:6

Everything seemed to be going so wrong, until suddenly it wasn’t. Mystified, they stood in the presence of a resurrected Savior, the Galilean man who had been their friend.

In a turn: that which had been sealed was open;

What had been broken was restored;

Where breathing had ceased, life coursed.

Where doubt had laid claim, mystery knocked, Hope exhaled, and belief was born.

Wide eyes, weak knees, pounding hearts, hands held out:


“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” 

—Matthew 28:20
