Even in those times when I am not totally sure that I buy into this whole Christianity thing, I look at Jesus. I listen to his words. I look to his sacrificial love that was exhibited throughout his life. And I remember the resurrection.
I remember that even though there is evil lingering ever so strongly in this world, even though those of us who bear his name make a mockery of it, even though things sometimes seem to fall apart, Christ is risen. Death, evil, sin, and whatever other crap that exists out there has been defeated and will be defeated.
That is something to hold onto. That is something for which to be thankful. Because of Jesus, I have been saved, I am being saved, I will be saved. God’s grace and love is available to us all. May God resurrect each of us heart, soul, mind, and body.
Christ is risen. Christ is risen indeed. Thank God.
