Easter 2023 Reflection

He has risen, now what? The celebration of Easter is perpetual. God’s people cannot just show up on Christmas and Easter because the faith of Christians is a challenge to be active, communal, and loving. It requires believers to love as we are loved by Jesus.

God is good and I am down with that sentiment. But are his people? Not always but that is what forgiveness and love are about. That is the power of resurrection. God loves his people and we have to be reminded that love overcomes a lot of stuff.

Remember the love of the returning Christ is also a call to resist the evils of fear, hate, and other things that do great harm to our friends and neighbors. Be yourselves but be the best you can with a little help from fellow misfits like Jesus.
