Sermons about Easter Morning
Can you imagine the look in Mary's eyes as she beheld the risen Lord on that glorious Easter morning? What thoughts went through her mind? What emotions did she feel? Listen to Dr. Wallace Wheeles as he interprets the story of Easter as told by John.
When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. 3 And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back— it was very large. 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. 6 And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” 8 And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
The supernatural facts of the empty tomb, the stone covering the tomb rolled away, and the appearance of an angel in the tomb telling that Jesus is risen, are miraculous experiences for the women who came expecting to embalm Jesus’ dead body. Yet, it takes something more than this to evoke Easter faith—it takes meeting the risen Savior.
