HAPPY RESURRECTION SUNDAY!
HE IS RISEN!
HE IS ALIVE!
What a day we celebrate and remember today. A day that broke every mold of humanity and mortality. A day that turned overwhelming grief into abudant joy. A day that changed the world forever. After 3 days of loss, the script was flipped and brought life everlasting.
I don’t know about you, but if I was any character in the story of the resurrection, I would want to be Mary Magdalene. She was the first to encounter Jesus after He had risen. Out of everyone in His life, He chose her. Her faithfulness to Him and belief is His words allowed her to have a personal moment with her friend, mentor, and savior before the chaos of everyone else discovering the news. She had accepted his death as a reality, but she also held true to what He had spoken before. That’s the kind of faith and relationship with Christ I want to have. Despite everything my eyes are seeing and ears are hearing the moment, I want to hold tight to what was said before the chaos began, the grief came, or life rapidly changed.
We live in an ever changing world. This fact is especially evident in this global pandemic we are all currently in the midst of. Information and guidelines seem to change faster than we can keep up.
Yet, in the midst of it all Christ is not changing.
He is still the same. He is the constant we can hold on to when everything else in our world is changing. He will remain the same now and tomorrow just as He has in the past.
