First, read a selection of Scripture for today:

Lk 24:1-12

At daybreak on the first day of the week the women who had come from Galilee with Jesus
took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb; but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were puzzling over this, behold, two men in dazzling garments appeared to them.
They were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground. They said to them, “Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here, but he has been raised. Remember what he said to you while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners and be crucified, and rise on the third day.” And they remembered his words. Then they returned from the tomb and announced all these things to the eleven
and to all the others. The women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James; the others who accompanied them also told this to the apostles, but their story seemed like nonsense and they did not believe them. But Peter got up and ran to the tomb, bent down, and saw the burial cloths alone; then he went home amazed at what had happened.

Now, after a few minutes of prayer, are you ready to see a spiritual challenge for you? 👇

The two greatest Christian holidays are about life. One speaks of its beginning, while the other speaks of the fact that although seemingly lost, life – thanks to God – will go on. Today, find pictures of your loved ones who are no longer with us. Tell them how much you miss them and that you truly believe. Tell them that the story of resurrection and life in heaven is real for you.
