The Risen Savior: Fulfilling Promise and Hope – A Daily Devotion

Scripture: Luke 24:6-7 (NIV) – “He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'”


On this Easter Sunday, we are drawn to the words of the angel at the empty tomb, recorded in Luke 24:6-7. These words encapsulate the heart of the Easter message—the triumphant resurrection of Jesus Christ. As we explore this passage, let us delve into the promise and hope that it offers to all who believe.

“He is not here; he has risen!” With these words, the angel delivers the most profound news ever proclaimed—the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The empty tomb stands as a tangible testament to this miraculous event, confirming the truth of Jesus’ victory over sin and death. The resurrection is the linchpin of the Christian faith, the cornerstone upon which our hope and salvation rest.

“Remember how he told you…” The angel reminds the women of Jesus’ own words, spoken to them while he was still alive. Throughout his ministry, Jesus had foretold his death and resurrection, preparing his disciples for this ultimate demonstration of God’s power and love. His resurrection validates his identity as the Son of God and the Messiah, confirming the truth of his message and the hope of eternal life for all who believe in him.

“The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.” These words echo Jesus’ own predictions of his impending death and resurrection. The phrase “Son of Man” points to Jesus’ divine authority and mission as the promised Savior and Redeemer. His death and resurrection were not accidents of history but part of God’s redemptive plan to reconcile humanity to himself.

As we celebrate Easter Sunday, let us embrace the profound truth of Luke 24:6-7 with gratitude and awe. Let us rejoice in the resurrection of our Savior and the hope of new life that he offers. And let us live each day in the light of his resurrection, confident in the promise of eternal life and the assurance of his presence with us always.


Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of resurrection hope that we celebrate on this Easter Sunday. Thank you for the victory of Jesus over sin and death, and for the promise of new life that he offers to all who believe in him. May we embrace the truth of his resurrection with gratitude and awe, and live each day in the light of his victory. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
