Easter Sunday

The miracle has happened. Christ has risen. Hallelujah. Poets and hymn writers have attempted to put into words the wonder of the resurrection.

‘The strife is o’er, the battle done.’ Christ has been triumphant over death. ‘He broke the bonds of death and hell.’ The resurrection of Jesus shows that the power of death has been won. ‘Death cannot keep his prey, Jesus my Lord.’ Christmas was a work begun and Easter is a work completed. The debt for sin has been fully paid; there is no more penalty necessary

Do we as Christians sometimes live as if the battle has not been wo?. Are we apologetic for our beliefs? We should be shouting it from the roof-tops. Christ is the only answer to the problems of the world. Doesn’t everyone want an answer to our many. many struggles. ‘Turn your eyes upon Jesus.’
