Easter Monday: Imagine that!
While they were saying all this, Jesus appeared to them and said, "Peace be with you." They thought they were seeing a ghost and were scared half to death. He continued with them, "Don't be upset, and don't let all these doubting questions take over. Look at my hands; look at my feet—it's really me. Touch me. Look me over from head to toe. A ghost doesn't have muscle and bone like this." As he said this, he showed them his hands and feet. They still couldn't believe what they were seeing. It was too much; it seemed too good to be true.
Luke 24:36-41, The Message Bible
Look at the day. April Fool’s Day. Imagine that! Imagine it is the first Easter and Jesus appeared to you. You would probably think that is was a joke, someone pulling your leg, playing a mean trick on you. Yet, there He was, very much alive that first Easter morning.
Once it sank in, what would your next reaction be? Could words even describe it?
