affected on Easter
We sang this on Easter Sunday, and it really affected me. I realized I hadn't thought about the resurrrection in a long time. It's just not something that I regularly consider. The cross, maybe. But I often stop there, which is silly. That's like stopping a movie 20 minutes before the end and trying to get excited about what a great story it was. The story of Jesus did not end with the cross. Was the cross important? Absolutely. Does it have a breathtaking beauty in its own right? You bet. Was it God's final word on the matter? Nope. The empty grave was. Praise be to God!
