  • A PROMISE TO SHARE -"But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.  As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.  'Don't be alarmed,' he said.  'You are looking for Jesus gthe Nazarene who was crucified. He has risen!  He is not here.  See the place where they laid Him.  But go, tell HIs disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see Him just as He told you.'" – Mark 16:4-7, NIV
