He Has Risen!

March 30, 2015

As I prepare to preach this coming Easter Sunday, the resurrection of Christ is still so amazing to me.  Amazing because I see the resurrection happen on a daily basis.  The old is gone, the new has come. Christ came to die, and we will die.  This earthly body will be no more, like a leaf falling from a tree.  This past weekend I raked up many dead leaves, and then looked up in the tree only to see new leaves, new growth, new life.

I also planted seeds this past weekend.  I buried the seed that had fallen dead and would be nothing more than a seed if not buried.  Buried to be raised, and scriptures says, buried in brokenness, but raised in glory, buried in weakness, but raised in strength.  I understand that my physical body will one day be done, I will be buried, but thank God I will not remain there.  The gift of God is eternal life.

Just as He died and was buried, He came out of the grave to give us life and to take on a new life.  I see it every day, especially as we have come into this season of spring.  Everything is blooming, everything is changing, things are growing, the dead grass is turning green, trees are budding, new life is springing forward.

He is not dead, He Has Risen!  Look around it is amazing!

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.  (Martin Luther)
