“The Resurrection of Jesus is a sign of God’s purpose and power to restore his creation to its full stature and integrity. Just as death could be seen as the culmination of all that is wrong with the world, so the resurrection can be seen as a pledge of God’s ultimate victory over the disorder which plagues his creation on account of the fall. Death is the greatest enemy, and yet death has been defeated by God through Christ. And so we are given hope that the remainder of the powers and forces that confront us are similarly being defeated and their power broken.”
~ Alister E. McGrath
In the end, we can absolutely always count on this:
Life’s stones roll away and Hope rises.
Our Savior Lives.
Happy Resurrection Day, dear friends.
