He seemed like a defeated man: opposed and
killed by his enemies, his followers scattered in fear. Yet three days after
Jesus’ death he rose victorious from the dead. Nothing would ever be the same.
The rest of eternity is now a victory march for the risen Christ. During
Easter, we are not passive observers in Christ’s victory; we are active
participants in Christ’s triumph. Just as his death was our death, so also his
life is our life. The victory is ours, now and forever. Easter is more than a
day; it is an entire joyful season!
