Significant Places: The Empty Tomb
Mark 16:5-6

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“Entering the tomb, . . . he said to them, "Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.” Mark 16:5-6 NASB

The most amazing and significant aspect of the tomb is that Jesus did not stay there. The tomb is empty! Jesus did not stay dead! He arose from the tomb, never to die again! Jesus is victorious over sin and death! Because of the cross and the empty tomb, all people who believe, who trust in Jesus, who place their complete faith solely in Jesus, will have their sins forgiven, have a new life in Christ, and will spend eternity with Him in Heaven.

Lord Jesus, because You died, You were buried, and You rose again, I now have a new life in You. For by grace I have been saved through faith in You.
