"He is not here; he is risen, just as he said" (Matthew 28:6).
I'm excited to be part of an arts group that was recently started at my church. The purpose of the group is to find ways to use our God-given abilities in fine art, poetry, music, video, etc. to encourage the church members. This latest assignment was fun for me. This Friday, Good Friday, we will have a room at the church available for prayer time. Our group is in charge of supplying art, written words, and music to this room to help encourage the believers there to focus on Christ and the true meaning of His sacrifice on the Cross.
For my contribution, I chose to do a painting of the empty tomb. It was truly amazing that Christ died for me the horrible death that He did for the remission of my sins. But it didn't end there! He conquered death by His resurrection! True victory! So the excitement of Easter morning is there because my Savior lives and defeated sin and death!
