Then they saw an angel. The angel told them, "Jesus is not here. He has risen just like He promised!" Jesus was alive again. His friends were very happy.
Some of His friends did not believe that Jesus had really come back to life. They did not believe until He came to see them. Then they were happy too.
Jesus promised that everyone who believed on Him would someday live with Him. Many Christians celebrate that promise by going to church on Easter Sunday. Some go very early when the sun is coming up. Others go later in the day. Many people wear their best clothes. The churches are full of flowers. The people sing joyful hymns. They remember the story of the resurrection. Then, they go home to celebrate with family or friends.
