the news of our Risen King wasn't just for the disciples. it was for all of us. you. me. the sinner. the saint. your neighbor. your friend. your enemy. your father. your child. you. me. all of us.
as soon as i finish this post, i will pray for every soul who reads this blog post. that eyes be opened. ears be cleared. minds be changed. and souls be saved. this Easter...every Easter is what that is about. that we who are so desperate, just like the disciples, would come to a place of belief and restoration through the life and death of Jesus Christ. and those of you who are believers...rejoice my friends. rejoice in the glory of our Risen King.
happy Easter everybody. happy happy Easter.

"He is not here; he has risen, just as he said"
