Easter Triumph

This morning we celebrate the true Truimph of Christ. The women sadly come to the tomb, prepared only to offer a final anointing of their Master and Teacher. They are met by angels announcing “He is not here. He is risen!”

Our truiumphant Easter anthems ring out in churches this morning with trumpets and “Alleluias.” The ancient greeting is exchanged again and again:
Alleluia! The Lord is Risen!
He is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ transformed the world. It transformed the disciples and each person they talked to. As it says in the Book of Acts (17:6) “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also.”

Although we are ending our Walk Through Lent, we never end our Walk with Jesus. I invite you to come back and meditate with me, throughout the Easter Season, on some ways that lives are transformed by Christ.

Easter Blessings!
