Reflections on the Resurrection of Christ

Easter Sunday is almost here. As I read the Book of Mormon this morning, a few verses stood out to me. I love how Jesus Christ is infused into ever page of that book. I love the experiences I have while I'm reading: the thoughts that come to me, the inspiration I receive, and how my understanding is deepened more and more. Verses 7-9 reads:

"And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection. 
BUT THERE IS A RESURRECTION,
therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ. He is the light and life of the world; yea, a light that is ENDLESS, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is ENDLESS, that there can be no more death."

I also love how every single day, without fail, there is a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Just as the sun lights the world after night, He gives us the sure hope of life after death. He is my shepherd, my rock, my joy, my peace. I hope everyone has a joyful Easter Sunday.
