Ahh, the most joyous of Christian holidays! Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
The Christ has overcome death, that last foe. He has freely given himself on our behalf. He has set the example, such that, we cannot possibly live a better life than one in imitation of the Christ.
"Greater things than these, you will do..." Jesus promised. Wow! That is some pretty great stuff!
"Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him." Lk 12:4-5
"As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him. And He did not let him, but He said to him, "Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you." Mk 5:18-19
Let us rejoice today in the Joy of the L^rd and the joy of our Salvation.
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
