Hello again, I told you I would make up for not posting yesterday :]
As you know, Easter Sunday is coming up in about a month. Eater is my FAVORITE day of the year. I mean, like Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15 “13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” And I fully believe that He conquered death, that Jesus Christ raised himself, just as He said He would. For this bulletin cover I kept it simple, I actually like to keep easter bulletins simple and focus more on the verses. It is one of my favorite verses in the bible and it’s from Matthew 28. It is where Mary Magdalene and the other mary (as Matthew says) go to the tomb. When they arrive there is an angel there and I love the description we get of the angel, it says his appearance was like lighting. The angel says to them (and this is my favorite part), “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
Please feel free to use this cover, or any other cover on this blog. Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Jesus Has Risen
1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
