He was surrounded by the darkness of evil, but His light overcame that darkness.
He was laid into the tomb like the prison of sin on the human race, but it couldn’t hold Him as He broke free.
He endured that great fear of humanity – death – but He destroyed its powerful sting with resurrection life.
It looked like the end, but it wasn’t the end of the story.
