Christ is risen!

“He is risen indeed!” was our joyful response in church this morning, as it has been for Christians down the centuries since that first Easter day when Mary Magdalene and the others found the empty tomb.

114 Garden TombThat empty tomb is the reason I believe Jesus really was the Son of God, as he claimed, and not just a very good man or a great teacher.

After all, what “very good man” would play the ultimate trick on his followers and stage a fake resurrection? As CS Lewis once wrote, Jesus was either mad, bad - or God.

In our part of the world nature is preparing for a winter snooze right now, so it’s harder to get our hearts and minds around the wonderful symbolism of new life that folk in the northern hemisphere see all around them with spring’s budding.

Nevertheless I know I have New Life in Jesus – and I’m glad!
