We All Need a Resurrection

31 Mar
  1. Easter is not just about Jesus; it is about you. He has already claimed his new life; now is your chance to claim yours.
  2. Easter is not just about death; it is about life, and not just life after death – that’s the easy part – but real life before death, right now. You do not have to die to live.
  3. Easter is not just about the past, way back then and long ago; it is all about the future. Literally, I say to you, your best days are ahead of you. “Old things are passed away; behold, all thing are become new.” 

– The Rev. Peter J. Gomes

When God resurrected Christ, God placed Christ in a new universe beyond the reach of historians, into an eternal realm. Christ’s resurrection allows all of nature to experience rebirth, not just human beings. The resurrection is a symbol a new life, of hope springing forward.

We are all in need of a resurrection of one sort or another. It may be time to resurrect damaged personal relationships. It may be time to resurrect that well-loved hobby you put on the shelf years ago. I’ve often wondered why people make “resolutions” on New Year’s Eve when Easter seems like a more logical choice for new beginnings.

We can look toward “the” resurrection and understand that we too can be victorious against all our enemies.
