Jesus died, and was laid in a tomb. And He rose on the third day! Hallelujah! He is alive and has all power and authority in this world.

Michelangelo Caravaggio.

"Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. ....she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her." John 20:1;14-18

Jesus died. He was separated from His body. His soul went into the hand of His Father. And on Sunday, the first day of the week, Jesus' soul reunited with His body that lay in the tomb for three days, and He came forth, never to die again. He is the firstborn.

One day we will be separated from our body, that is, when we die. Unless the Lord returns before then. And our souls will be without our body. But there will come a day when God will reunite our soul and body, and we shall be a new creation, as Jesus is, and we shall never die again.
And not only that, but we shall have no more sin to deal with, and only joy and love to fill our hearts and lives forever.

Praise His mercy and grace for making a way for this to happen to such a sinner as I.

Thanks you Lord! Amen

Right now we are Non Posse Non Pecare. That means we are not capable of not sinning. What a glorious day that will be when God's children are given Non Posse Pecare --the inability to sin.
