Jesus says to you and me: “I am the resurrection and the life. The person who believes in me, even though he dies, will live.”

 

The everlasting life that Jesus offers us is available not just after the grave. The life that Jesus offers us is also here and now, amid all the pain, loss, hardship, confined and dead places in our lives. We don’t have to physically die to have life that springs from above, life that is of the Holy Spirit. We don’t have to physically die to have life that rolls back stones, life that is of the deep peace of God.

 

By Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, he offers a different kind of life, a new life, in the present. 

 

I am not pretending life isn’t hard or death isn’t real. Death is more often than not a painful part of life. We know the longing to see dear relatives and friends who have died, to embrace them one more time. We know the grief of a dream falling apart before our very eyes, in our very homes. We know the disease of an addiction that robs us of our best selves. We know, sometimes all too well, that the grave, that death is a part of life.

 

God is one who offers life in the midst of death, the big death and all the little ones that happen as we grow up and grow into God’s grace. By Jesus’ death and resurrection, God in Christ made a way for us to have everlasting life on both sides of the grave. Life that springs from above, life that is of the Holy Spirit, life that rolls back stones, life that is of the deep peace of God.

 

Real life, new life is God's gift to us. Embrace it, be persistent in your prayer and faith, and live in faithful witness to the risen Christ.

The Resurrection is the brightest moment in history, and no other event has had such a profound and lasting impact on humanity.  For, by his death on the cross and his resurrection, Jesus Christ--God in human form--won for us the pathway to everlasting life.  What could possibly trump this?

 

Although Jesus was put to death, as God he lives forever. He rose from the dead—and thus conquered sin and the last enemy of human life: death. Death could not conquer Jesus Christ—could not conquer God in human form.
