Happy Easter, dear sister. Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed. Alleluia!
What a privilege for us to proclaim this Good News today from where we stand in history. I find myself so grateful for the last line of today’s Gospel, at the response of two of Jesus’ most beloved friends after finding Jesus was no longer in the tomb. “They did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead” (John 20:9).
Haven’t we all been there? Maybe you even find yourself there today. Sometimes it is difficult to understand or see what the Lord is doing in our lives. We hope, we dream, we pray, we seek the Lord’s will, and yet at times we feel unheard.
Of course, we know it isn’t so: the Lord is ever with us, He always hears us. Our struggle to understand is because we lack His vision. We can’t see beyond the present moment; we only see what is happening from our earthly perspective.
Saint Paul reminds us today to “[s]eek what is above . . . think of what is above, not of what is on earth” (Colossians 3:1-2). Yes, this is our call! What an encouragement in those moments of confusion, what a good word for each of us as we celebrate our precious Lord’s resurrection over death not only this joyful day, but for the next fifty days of the Easter season. Christ is risen. Let us seek Him.
Ask Jesus to fill you with His hope today. You may not see what He’s doing, but place your trust in Him. Renew your desire to experience the full glory of Easter in Heaven with Jesus. Lord, we love You and we praise You. Amen. Alleluia!Christ is risen. Let us seek Him. // @inendlesssong Click To Tweet
