Eastertide: Day 1
Happy, happy Easter! On this day, Christ was resurrected. Although no one saw it, most Christians believe that Christ simple burst out of the tomb, fully alive, awake, empowered. On this day, the final enemy, death, was defeated. This is the day when Christ definitively showed his Lordship, over creation and over time. This is the day he fulfilled his prophesy "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up." (John 2:19-21) In short, this is the day that gives us a reason to hope.
Christ the Lord is Risen Today!
