Sunday Inspiration: He is Risen!

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has regenerated us unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead ..." 1 Peter 1:3

In our family, we call this day Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday. With all due respect for others' family traditions, the kids understand that the resurrection of our Savior really has nothing to do with fertility goddesses, fluffy bunnies or colored eggs (coloring eggs happens on another day for us). 

What it does mean is that Jesus' sacrifice worked -- He paid the price to atone for our sins, and His resurrection was the receipt, saying that both God and the law were satisfied. 

It means that it was "not possible for Him to be held by death." (Ian reminded us at the breakfast table of Aslan breaking loose of his ropes at the Stone Table.)

And now He offers this same indestructible life -- this living hope -- to all who will receive this free gift.

Sounds pretty awesome, if you ask me.
