Easter - our hope made flesh

 

He is risen… Jesus Christ has risen from the dead.

This is the message at the heart of the whole Christian story. This is our faith and this is our hope. This is the promise of God's redemption made visible in time and space. And this is why Christians for the last 2,000 years have celebrated Easter as the highest holy day of our faith.

We believe that Christ's death and resurrection wasn't about him alone. The Apostle Paul tells us that Jesus has become the last Adam, the new and final representative of the human race. So in the same way that we see ourselves there in Christ on the cross, we know that we will also be with him in his resurrection.

Death has been defeated, and we will be raised. The deepest longings of our hearts have found their home. Hallelujah! Our lives are safe in the hands of our Lord.
