He is risen! Go and tell!!

Rev Enoch Thompson | APRIL 9, 2023 | Matthew 28:1-10


⁶He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. ⁷Then 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." Matthew 28:6-7 (NIV)


Christ is Risen! Christ is risen indeed!!

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!!

We can sing with the saints of all ages:

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!

1. The strife is o'er, the battle done;

the victory of life is won;

the song of triumph has begun.


2. Death's mightiest powers have done their worst,

but Christ their legions has dispersed:

let shouts of praise and joy outburst:


The waiting-time is over, and the victorious conquering Saviour emerges triumphant over the most domineering and crippling power, death. The breaking news is here; CHRIST HAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD!

At His birth, the good news of His arrival was proclaimed by angels, pursued by lowly shepherds and followed by sophisticated Magi from the east. At His resurrection, the great news was not to be kept hidden. While the forces of darkness were conspiring by good old filthy financial manipulations to keep the truth of the resurrection wrapped up by giving money to the soldiers and planning to bribe the Roman leadership, the camp of the faithful is equally called upon to go and tell. The angel told the women to go and tell the disciples (verse 7), and on their way, the Lord Himself told the women to go and tell the disciples, whom He calls “my brothers” (verse 10).

We must first come and see the empty tomb, and then go out to announce the resurrected Saviour to a dying world.


Have you believed beyond every shadow of a doubt that Jesus Christ arose from the dead? Do you have living evidence in your life that He is alive and rules in your heart? Do you walk with Him and talk with Him? Does He determine your tears and your joys? Then go to a dying world and shout from the top of the mountains; “Jesus Christ is alive. He wants to live in your hearts.”


Hallelujah, thank you, Lord, that you arose for my justification, and that you live in my heart. I believe you arose, may I arise daily, from all that brings death in my spirit and all that seeks to keep me dead. May I experience resurrection power in every aspect of life and resound to all the world around me the living presence of the resurrected Saviour. Hallelujah! For your dear Name’s sake, Amen.
