The Glory of Easter

He is risen! He is risen, indeed!  Well we have finally gotten through the trials and suffering of the past week and have gotten to the glorious Easter Sunday!  When we see the empty tomb we are, once again, reminded of the new life that we receive in Christ and the promise for eternal life. One of my favorite things to do here is to sit on my porch and watch the sun rise. I love watching the colors and feeling the warmth as it rolls up over the horizon. It was especially beautiful this morning and was a perfect symbol that shows that no matter how dark and cold things get, the morning will come and the sun/Son will rise again! Amen.

The following lyrics are from one of my favorite songs about Easter, called “Now Let Us Dance!”

Now let us dance for the victory is won!
Now let us sing for song has begun,
Now let us live in the light of the Son
Gathered and called and united as one.

When we see the grave, stone is rolled away
Hear the angels say, “He is Risen!”
When we rise from death, filled with God’s own breath
Dead in sin and yet we’re forgiven!

At dawn as they walked, hanging their heads,
They fell in reverence when angels said,
“Why do you look for the living with the dead?”
Their mourning walk turned to dancing instead!

  1. Happy Easter, Jordan! I just found out that a guy I went to high school with is married to Pastor Tessa, the new country coordinator for the South Africa based Young Adults in Global Mission program. Maybe you will meet their family before you come home? What a small world! Maybe when you come home we can talk about how we can support them as you will know first-hand what they need most :) Take care and love well-
