HE IS RISEN!

A few weeks ago, I did a poll on Facebook to determine which bible version was the most popular. Here are the top three that won the poll. I compared Luke 24:5 - 6a in each version. While some verses vary greatly in language and terminology, I find it comforting that the most profound and joyous passages are pretty much the same:

3rd Place: New International Version

In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen!

2nd Place: New King James Version

Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but is risen!

1st Place and still most popular: King James Version

And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen:

Thank God, yes, He IS risen. We sing how Christ arose. We sing My Redeemer lives. We know we serve a risen Saviour. Death could not keep Him, the grave could not hold him. Praise God, HE AROSE!

May you all enjoy a blessed day as you enjoy the beautiful Easter Sunday and celebrate the fact that "He is not here, He is risen! 

Happy Easter!
