Thank you for joining my family in our 2 Weeks 2 the Cross journey! We have had an amazing 14 days focusing on the cross and the incredible love of Jesus.
Early Christians would great each other in this way: one would say “He is risen!” and the other would respond, “He is risen indeed!”. Jesus’s victory would begin every conversation. It would be in the center of their thoughts. There was nothing better to begin an interaction!
I wonder when this tradition began to fade. What if the resurrection of Jesus Christ was the hallmark of all our conversations today? What if Jesus was on the forefront of our minds as we opened our mouths to speak? It would transform our words, attitudes and actions!
The earth-quaking message that Jesus is alive is meant to be shared! The resurrection is for each of us—giving us hope and power to live abundantly! Jesus is alive!!
Happy Easter from my family to yours! May the forgiveness that is ours because of the cross, and the resurrection that transforms our lives be ever on our minds and hearts.
