I just read Max Lucado’s devotional entitled “Easter Canceled? Not on Your Life” (April 10, 2020) at

I’m sharing an exerpt of his hopeful and true words:

“Easter cannot be canceled. The church doors might be closed,  but the promise is alive and well. What the angel said on the first Easter, he says still.

He is not here. He is risen from the dead as He said He would.’ (Matthew 28: 6)” (Max Lucado)

Acknowledging that we have reason to be hopeful, I’ll add my agreement: “He is risen indeed!”


For more about the first Easter according to the Holy Bible, read from the following New Testament books: Gospel of MATTHEW (chapters 27 & 28); Gospel of MARK (chapters 15 & 16); Gospel of LUKE (chapters 23 & 24); and Gospel of JOHN (chapters 19 & 20).

For past planethopeful blog posts related to Easter please read “RESURRECTION SONG: DAWNING OF HOPE” (April 21, 2019) and “JESUS’S WORDS ON THE CROSS: LAST WORDS GIVE HOPE” (April 16, 2019).
