HAPPY EASTER - HE IS RISEN!
He is risen. Three small words that brought the collective pace of humanity to an absolute standstill.
He is risen. Three words that shattered prisons. Words that shook the earth’s foundations.
Words that transformed a sense of utter despair into cry's of pure joy and ecstasy.
Echoes of history's greatest triumph that still shape our reality.
Even today we are assaulted by constant distraction,
Countless words waging war for our attention and yet three words pierce the noise,
In our hunger for validation, our desperate pleas for love and attention, three words calm our anxiety,
In a universe spinning at breakneck speed, its inhabitants locked in an existential crisis,
Three words proclaim the purpose of our existence, HE IS RISEN.
Lay hold of this truth and embrace the peace within.
Yesterday fear reigned within our hearts, yesterday we sat in crippling darkness,
Yesterday we suffered abuse and all the accusations of a broken world, but today,
Our KING, our HEALER, our DEFENDER, IS RISEN
And this reality doesn't merely accompany us on a meaningless journey,
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
For you see, if He is risen, then all other pursuits become secondary,
All of our failures become insignificant, all criticisms and condemnations become irrelevant,
There is ONLY HIS WORD, HIS MISSION and His infinite unconditional LOVE FOR YOU,
Because He is risen we look to tomorrow,
Tomorrow we will stop defining our worth through status and social media,
Tomorrow we will, together, build an everlasting kingdom,
Tomorrow, and every day after, we will dance in the radiance of a redeeming Saviour,
WHO CRUSHED DEATH AND SET US FREE
There is nothing that Jesus cannot overcome.
We know this because HE LIVES.
We know this because HE IS RISEN.
