It's present tense. It's happening now. In your heart, in the marketplace, in the bedroom, the family room, in all God's spacious creation! He is risen.
The season of Easter, from Easter Sunday morning (April 5) until the day of Pentecost (some 50 days later) on May 24, we luxuriate in the immediacy of Christ's rising from a tomb in Palestine and rising in our hearts and lives today. Possibility. Hope. Reconciliation. Death defeated. This season blazes with the deepest, passionate notes of God's love for all humanity.
May you celebrate your rising in Christ. May you follow Jesus Christ with all your life. May you live Easter!
Grace+Peace, Pastor Joel
