Light for My Path Daily Devotion
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women went to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb. When they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men stood by them in dazzling clothing. The women were terrified and bowed down with their faces to the ground. The men said to them, “Why are you looking for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has been raised! Remember how he told you while he was still in Galilee that the Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again?” Then they remembered his words. When they returned from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the rest. (Luke 24:1-9 EHV)
Hymn ELH 340:1-2,6 Alleluia! Jesus Lives
Alleluia! Jesus lives!
He is now the Living One;
From the gloomy house of death
Forth the Conqueror has gone,
Bright Forerunner to the skies
Of His people, yet to rise.
Jesus lives! Let all rejoice;
Praise Him, ransomed ones of earth.
Praise Him in a nobler song,
Cherubim of heavenly birth.
Praise the Victor-King, whose sway
Sin and death and hell obey.
Alleluia! Angels, sing!
Join us in our hymn of praise.
Let your chorus swell the strain
Which our feebler voices raise:
Glory to our God above
And on earth His peace and love!
Jesus, my Lord and my Savior, thank you for living a perfect life in my place and dying to pay for all my sins. Thank You for the assurance of my salvation, proven to me through Your resurrection. Amen.
