Meditation for Easter Sunday:
The faith of Christians is based on three miracles.
Firstly, the miracle that the mighty God, creator of heaven and earth and all that is in them, would voluntarily give up his glory and come to live among us as a human being, and suffer and die for all the sins that will ever be committed by us poor creatures.
Secondly, the miracle that by the power of God, he overcame death itself, and rose again, thus ensuring the promise that those who belong to him will also rise one day to eternal life with him.
Thirdly, the miracle that us poor creatures, who committed the sin that he paid for, are offered the forgiveness that we need in order to be fit for heaven one day, and in the mean time live in newness of life, empowered to serve him and our fellow men.
The words ‘thank you’ are just not adequate.
