Tell Others that Jesus is Alive!

He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.

Matthew 28:6

Battle Drill Daily Devotional

Read Matthew 28:1-10.

What’s one of the first things you want to do when you receive good news? Tell other people!

It might be the birth of a child. Perhaps a new job. Maybe exam success. A new relationship. But when you have some good news, you just want to share it.

What’s remarkable about Jesus’ resurrection, is that once his followers found out about it, they just wanted to tell others the good news! The women ran back from the tomb to tell the disciples. Peter and John went home to tell their families the tomb was empty. Soon, all the disciples were spreading the gospel in Jerusalem and beyond.

The resurrection is the basis of our good news for the world. The resurrection means Jesus wasn’t just a good man. He wasn’t just a remarkable teacher. He wasn’t just a religious leader. The resurrection means he was indeed the Son of God. Your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers – in fact, anyone you meet – can have a relationship with God because of Jesus’ resurrection. Now that’s good news worth telling, isn’t it!

O joyful sound! O glorious hour
When Christ by his almighty power
Arose and left the grave!
Now let our songs his triumph tell
Who broke the chains of death and Hell,
And ever lives to save.

He lives, he lives,
I know that my Redeemer lives.
He lives, he lives,
I know that my Redeemer lives.
