Easter is all about God. Resurrection is all about God. Jesus was not resuscitated. He was not
hooked up to a defibrillator and brought back to life. He was jerked out of death into a whole
new way of being by the hand of a mighty God. Jesus was resurrected. He is the firstborn of all
who believe. We follow him through faith. Our faith is in a God who acts, not one who sits
passively by as sin, fate and death hold sway. God has defeated all three through one glorious
act. There is a great deal we have control of in this life. Resurrection is completely, utterly out
of our control. Easter is the day our Lord has acted. It is our reminder that eternal life is gift,
given by the one who loves us. On this day our Lord has acted. All we need do is rejoice and be
glad in it.
May you all be blessed with a Holy Easter Season!
