What a Day for the Race!

Passage: Exodus 15:19-21,1 Corinthians 15:1-11,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. Easter, our great celebration of resurrection joy, should blow us away! New life, victory of life over death, is God having his way with the world. And yet it frightens us, too. Resurrection is the new reality--the ultimate change--Christ wants us to accept and expect...to quell any fears. That’s why all the racing around and all the Hallelujahs!
