Word of the Day... March 31, 2013 Resurrection Sunday...

So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb then also entered, and he saw and believed.  For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. John 20:8-9

When Peter and John saw the burial garments of Jesus, left as if his body had dematerialized out of them, they believed. “For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.”

This shows the blindness of preconceived ideas. Jesus had told his followers repeatedly that he would die and rise from the dead. Yet, when you don't want to hear something, you can just block it out of your mind. They wanted to see Jesus coming in His glory to establish his kingdom, and they just didn't catch on to what He was saying about death and resurrection.
It is so important for us to hear everything God is saying to us and not just what we want to hear or what we expect to hear.

I hope as each of you go about your day, that you stop and think about the great gift that Jesus gives to each one of us! It wasn't the Jews that nailed Him to the cross, it was love. His perfect love for each and every one of us. 

Unlike all of the gods people in the world create, our Creator is different. You can visit Buddha's grave, Mohammed's grave and they are there. However, when you visit the tomb of Jesus, it is empty! For He is not there! He is risen! Have a happy and Simply Heavenly Easter!
