Easter is about the resurrection and a reaction. Your reaction to the resurrection of Jesus. How do you react?
Take notice of the reactions and emotions of those close to Jesus as they discovered the tomb was empty.
Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. (John 20:11-12)...crying, fright, alarmed, trembling and bewildered, believed, afraid yet filled with joy, worshiped
As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.... Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid. (Mark 16:5,8)
In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground... (Luke 24:5)
Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (John 20:8)
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. (Matthew 28:8-9)
