And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. Matthew 28:9
What excites you? We all get excited about something. When our sport teams win. When our children receive that A on their big project. When we hang out with our friends. Even riding a roller coaster. With excitement comes celebration, happiness and joy and today is something to be excited about.
Jesus told the women to rejoice because He had risen. What does that mean? That your sin, my sin is paid in full and we have been given a gift of eternal life.
I encourage you to dance, clap your hands, stomp your feet, shout, do something to show your excitement!
Today is a celebration so have a party and rejoice with other Christians for the life that you have received because Jesus is risen.
