But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where He lay.”

—Matthew 28:5-6 (ESV)

A Time to Think

The Easter message tells us: You need not be afraid of anything—not life with all its insecurities, its conflicts, its uncertainties; not afraid of even death itself. You need have no fear—no fear! —Norman Vincent Peale

A Time to Act

Be filled with the power of tremendous hope.

A Time to Pray

Dear God, thank You for Your sacrifice. Thank You for making all things new! Shine Your light over me. Help me reflect Your peace and hope.
