Do not be Alarmed…He has Risen… April 12, 2020

Sign with words, faith, hope, love on it.
“Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.” Mark‬ ‭16:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Do not be alarmed… He has risen…”
Words that calm the stormy seas of the human mind. They are words that bring anxiety and certainty and doubt and faith. Faith. Faith that even though we haven’t seen him, we believe in him to be trustworthy.

“Do not be alarmed… He has risen…”
Words that awaken the stillness of the human heart. They are words that bring fear and courage and despair and hope. Hope. Hope that our lives were created for something beyond this broken world.

“Do not be alarmed… He has risen…”
Words that energize the inactivity of the human body. They are words that bring death and life and hate and love. Love. Love that abides in us is the greatest of these three; faith, hope, and love.

“Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.” Mark‬ ‭16:6‬ ‭ESV
