Go quickly and tell
“Go quickly and tell.” Matthew 28:7
On that first resurrection day the angel at the tomb delivered the most important message anyone can ever hear: “He is not here; for He is risen.” Death is a defeated foe! Christ has won the victory. Jesus is our resurrection and life. How hopeless our lives would be if these words were not true. Every cemetery and every grave site would be a mute witness to the futility and despair of human life. But His words are true! What a glorious hope we have because Jesus is alive. We must not keep this to ourselves. We are to do as the angel said, “Go quickly and tell” this fabulous, life-changing information to others.
At Peace and in many churches throughout the Denver area, the week following Easter we have a “neighboring” theme. Sunday worship, Saturday workshops, and even small group studies will focus on how to build great neighborhoods. The idea of loving your neighbor is SO simple, yet SO powerful, and how we can respond to the angel’s direction to “go quickly and tell”. Be watching for more information on these events and studies to take place after Easter. Even better, invite your neighbor to celebrate the resurrection with you at Peace Lutheran Church!
He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed. Alleluia!
