Capsule for the Day
Resurrection didn't just happen... it is happening day after day. For the apostles and disciples of Jesus it was all about telling the story of what they had witnessed and how they themselves have risen from fear to courage... from doubt to believe in the risen One... from despair to hope.
Two thousand years after Christ rose from the death, we still tell the same story. We tell the story of what we have received and what we have witnessed. He rose and He has risen. Great mystery with real life implications... He rose that we may rise... Rise from our darkness into His light.
It is amazing what the implications are in real currency. We are an Easter people and Alleluiah is our Song... the song of victory, not by force and coercion but by love and mercy. He reaches out to us even when we abandoned Him. He wants us to rise, to have what He has and is... Love.
