Sunday morning the women were headed to the tomb with the spices they had purchased the day before in order to tend to the body of their now dead master. Yet, upon their arrival at the tomb, they found it opened and empty! Jesus, whom they had seen killed on Friday, was not here in His grave. As they ran to tell the others, disbelief and incredulity ran high amongst the followers of Jesus. Yet, it was true…Jesus Christ was now alive having accomplished all that the Father had planned for Him and, because of that, all those who trust in Him will be saved!
