Easter is a wonderful season to ponder and pray about our relationship with our Lord and Savior. It is through the resurrection of Jesus that our own salvation and eternal life in heaven is even made possible. As Saint Paul states, concerning the resurrection, that if Jesus was not raised from the dead then his preaching was in vain and our faith is in vain. In fact if Jesus was not raised from the dead then for over two thousand years all Christians have been fools including you and I. Now of course Paul, having experienced the risen Christ knew very well that Jesus was raised from the dead and all of those Christians throughout the centuries believed in the resurrection as well. So if we believe in the resurrection of our Lord there is only one thing to do and that is to make our faith the pillar upon which the rest of our lives rest. Jesus must take precedence over every other thing in our lives not only as an example of how we should live our lives but also as a brother with whom we are the sons and daughters of God our Father.
If we make these connections with our belief in the resurrection we can truly rejoice now, for He is risen and has freed us from the power of death! All praise and glory be to God our Father, His Son our Lord and Savior through the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen!
Your servant in Christ,
