It has all been rather surreal having to celebrate Good Friday and Easter (or Resurrection Sunday, if you like) at home. But the fact that, as Christ-followers, we have something to celebrate takes us from the surreal to the supernatural! Yes, indeed! The resurrection of our Lord was not done medically! No one had to shout, “CLEAR!” before jolting His body back to life. It all took place in a guarded cave with a large stone blocking the entrance. And so, our refrain on this day will be, “CHRIST IS RISEN INDEED!!”
I say more about this in this year’s Easter message, entitled “Empty”, which you can view by clicking here.
You may recognize the title of this post as being a line from the familiar song by Bill Gaither, “Because He Lives”. As you celebrate Easter wherever you are, I pray you will be reminded of these words:
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
Blessed Resurrection Sunday, y’all!
