What is your reaction to the Resurrection of Jesus?


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)

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)
...crying, fright, alarmed, trembling and bewildered, believed, afraid yet filled with joy, worshiped

Let us React today to the truth of the Resurrection!

  1. My reaction? Once I was scared, unsure, not able to walk...since I have been found I am filled with awe, wonder, delight and dancing with life because of Him, His love, His sacrifice and all that He has done to fill up the cup of my heart and soul. Happy Easter!

  2. I am filled with awe, gratitude and praise for the goodness and the mighty works of christ to pay ransom for me and give me the opportunity to live and to have hope. This is a time to reflect on the goodness, and to make ourselves worthy for the gift by doing the deeds that christ called us to do. I am happy, thankful and hopeful and willing to serve.

  3. One of the most amazing things that our Heavenly Father has personally revealed to me is that the cross was all about Him proving Himself unto us. For instead of just saying that He loves us enough die for us--He went ahead and actually did it! I am very thankful that I still find this absolutely amazing, and I hope I never lose the child-like wonder over such things that He has placed in my heart.
