This is the day the Lord has made! Let us rejoice!
Do I really understand the magnitude of what has happened? This is an absolutely unique event in the entire history of mankind.
God Himself came to show us the way. Even past death.
It’s curious that we are so terrified of death. Especially in our modern world, we’ll spend everything we have to fend off the inevitable for another year or two. Even a few weeks.
With the resurrection, God has shown us that we really have nothing to fear. As long as we have faith and follow His path, He will be there for us.
This past year has brought some deep thinking about the personal implications of mortality. I’d like to say that I’ve come to a higher place and don’t worry about it as much. But that’s an exaggeration, I think.
My dear Father, I’m scared. Please hold my hand.
