Proper Easter Posture

Passage: Isaiah 65:17-25,1 Corinthians 15:19-26,John 20:1-18

“Christ is risen!” “Christ is risen indeed.” In deed—not just in spirit or in history, but in action, in the here and now, too. Christ’s victory is our victory. Stand up proudly! Easter is our great celebration of resurrection joy. New life, triumph of life over death, is God having His way with the world. Resurrection is the normal reality He wants us to accept and expect—not just on Easter, but every day; not just outside Jerusalem long ago, but here, where we are, for all time. Not just a day, or even a season, but a lifetime, a time of life!
