As I write, we are well into the season of Lent and not so distant from the joy and spiritual rejuvenation of Easter.
Nearing Easter excites thinking about the risen Christ. Easter Sunday is our time of celebration. It is also a time of empowerment.
St. Paul wrote to Christians in Ephesus, “God exerted mighty strength when He raised Christ from the dead….” (Ephes. Ch.1 v 20)
Thankfully God’s mighty strength isn’t a spent force, for St. Paul added, “God’s incomparably great power is for all of us who believe.” (Ephes. Ch.1 v 19)
As Christians, we go out into a sometimes hostile world, by the power of God.
But to do what? And for what purpose? Here are three clear answers. (St. Matt Ch.28 v19, 20)
Hopefully three clear answers to my earlier two questions.
And how? By the motivation and the ability stirred within us by the mighty resurrection power of God.
Easter Sunday should be noisy with the clamour of family joy, Christian celebration and the excitement of new beginnings.
