Chapel – 4/13/20
We are struggling with being at home……but He has risen!
We are missing our friends and family…..but He has risen!
We are grieving the loss of events that were important to us….but He has risen!
We are stressed over loss of jobs and online schooling….but He has risen!
We are feeling anxious over this unpredictable virus……but He has risen!
We are hurting because people are sick and dying…..but He has risen!
Why is the fact that “He has risen” the antidote to all that is wrong in this world? Because it makes all this sadness, stress, and grief temporary. Whatever may happen now on earth is only a drop in the bucket of time as Christ’s death and resurrection has procured for us eternal life with Him in perfect health, perfect joy, and perfect peace. He has done it all for us.
Jesus said, “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:51)
He is risen! He is risen indeed, Alleluia!
