Earmark of Easter

Kim Johnson

“that Christ died for our sins according to Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3b–4, NIV).

This month we celebrate Easter, focusing on the crucifixion and resurrection of the One who came to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. God’s unfailing love sent in the form of His Son, Jesus, to be our Redeemer is a gift of epic proportion. Sin and darkness sought to win, but love was triumphant.

The crucifixion assumed defeat but the resurrection confirmed victory.

The crucifixion caused death but the resurrection verified life.

The crucifixion incited despair but the resurrection yielded hope.

The crucifixion brought distress but the resurrection produced joy.

The crucifixion created desperation but the resurrection generated confidence.

The crucifixion disappointed but the resurrection inspired.

The crucifixion caused division but the resurrection brought unity.

The crucifixion urged doubt but the resurrection compelled clarity.

The crucifixion said, “It is finished,” but the resurrection said, “But I’m not.”

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! He is risen!

Christ the Lord is ris’n today, Alleluia! Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth, reply, Alleluia!                                               Charles Wesley, Hymn
