alive... just as He told you

But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.
Mark 16:7

Jesus Himself prophesied about His own resurrection. In fact, in the upper room before His crucifixion, Jesus predicted just this statement from the angels in Mark 14:28... "But after I am raised up, I will go before you in Galilee." And now, just as Jesus has said, He is back from the dead, ready to commission His men to preach His gospel to the world.

It is this risen Savior and Lord of life that is the focus of the gospel message. He is Lord. He is the One we proclaim, boldly, for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. His is the only name under heaven by Whom we are saved! Jesus is our living, loving, powerful God and Lord. We follow, obey, serve, and love our risen Savior.

Just as He said, He is risen from the dead. In our place He died for our sins so that we might have life in His name. Faith in Christ brings so much joy, power, help, and hope! We serve a risen Savior Who lives and works in us!
