He Is Risen!

April 20th, 2019

manger and crosses

He is risen!

“Early on the first day of the week, breath entered the body of a man who had been crucified three days earlier. The moment that he inhaled the stale air of the tomb, everything in the universe and human history changed. And now, his body awakened to a new life, he sat up, stood up and left the tomb as the one appointed to be the Lord of God’s entire creation. Jesus’ resurrection marked the first day of the new creation and is the basis for all the gifts of that new creation.” (from An Inexpressible Treasure: The Theology and Practice of Holy Baptism.)

Several years ago an Advent sermon series was entitled “The baby changes everything.”  These words remind us that it took more than the birth of the baby to change everything.  It took a crucifixion and resurrection to bring about a new creation.  And the “baby” did all that and more.

He is risen, indeed!  Alleluia!
