“But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.” – Matthew 28:5-6
C.S. Lewis wrote, “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is modestly important.”goodreads
When you find a plumber, roofer, or electrician who actually does what they say they’ll do, you tell other people about them. You bring it up during lunch, before business meetings, even when you get your hair cut. It’s so unusual, and you’re so thrilled that you can’t help but talk about it.
The Apostles knew Jesus firsthand. Some saw Jesus on the cross. After Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, they laid down their lives in service to Jesus, some in distant lands. Why? The Apostles knew that Jesus did what He said He would do (Luke 24:7). He arose from the dead. The apostles knew this news was of infinite importance and was worth their very lives to share this Good News with others.
As we celebrate Christ’s victory over death, hell, and the grave (Revelation 1:17-18), let’s share this good news with all who will listen! Jesus did what He said. That’s good news worth talk’n about.
