Rejoice - He Is Risen

Because Christ broke the power of sin and death, I too will live forever.  What an incredible plan He had; what an incredible future He gave me.  Not only joy now on earth because my sins are forgiven and I am counted as righteous in God's eyes because of Christ's death, but the gift of eternal life and therefore no need to fear death.  Obviously, I could go on and on.  But suffice it to say, Resurrection Sunday (Easter) is a pretty big deal for me.
I really love this image by Designed 2 Delight, now From the Heart, because even though we think of the cross for Easter, it is really the empty tomb that symbolizes Easter.  When friends and family members came to the burial place of Jesus, there was an angel at the entrance that said, "He is not here.  He has risen just as He said He would."
