Several weeks ago I began seeing some advertising on Instagram for tee’s with this on it:
Spoiler Alert – the tomb was empty!
I like that.
Actually, I love that.
It is the foundational Truth my faith is built on.
We do not have a Redeemer who is in a tomb.

Who has a Kingdom.
We have a Groom.
Who is preparing a feast for His bride.
We have a Brother.
Who intercedes on our behalf.
People! THE TOMB WAS EMPTY!
JESUS IS ALIVE!

Have a blessed and holy Resurrection weekend.
This week I’ll be linking up with:
