RISEN – Easter Luke 24:1-11

 Sometimes it is hard to believe in Easter. The great news of the resurrection is boldly proclaimed by the women to the male apostles.  The men do not believe this incredible news.

He is RISEN!

Sometimes it is hard to believe in Easter.

The great news of the resurrection is boldly proclaimed by the women to the male apostles. The men do not believe this incredible news.
 
 
“Their news struck the apostles as nonsense…” (v. 11)
 
 
Perhaps they were waiting for the women to say, “April Fool!”
 
Of course, the resurrection is no April fool – well accept to those who conspired against Jesus; to those who condemned Jesus; and to those who crucified Jesus; and thought that was the end of Jesus.
 
On this side of the empty tomb it seems obvious that the news of the resurrection is not nonsense.
 
Yet, Easter is still hard to believe.
 
 
Sometimes it is hard to believe in Easter.
 
 
Sometimes it is hard to believe that we can overcome our past.
 
 
Sometimes it is hard to believe we can break free.
 
 
Sometimes it is hard to believe things can change.
 
 
Sometimes it is hard to believe in Easter.
 

When has it been hard for you to believe in Easter?

How has meeting the risen Christ changed your life?
