 The following are my notes taken during my pastor's sermon.

Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.  And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.  And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.  The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.  The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.  Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples. - Matthew 28:1-8

Easter:  An Unforgettable Day

Points to Ponder

1.  Friday was a day of agony. 

The presence of friends means a lot.  The presence of faith means everything.
For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted. - Hebrews 2:18
Then He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.” - Matthew 26:38
Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. - Galatians 6:2
2.  Saturday was a day of chaos.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. - Isaiah 43:2
3.  Sunday was a day of hope.
 And everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” - John 11:26
4.  Today is a day of opportunity.

Share Jesus with others!  He's alive and well!
