The month of April. Many of us are going to ask the question - "Will April showers... be rain or snow?"
This past winter has been brutal for many of us. Snow. Ice. Cold. Yikes. It reminded me of the story in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe from C.S. Lewis, where the White Witch has put a curse on the land of Narnia. It was always winter, but never Christmas. Thankfully, Christmas did come for the people of Narnia and in our case, Spring is coming as well.
This month we also will be celebrating Resurrection Sunday. We really should be celebrating it every Sunday. What a glorious day that is. The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthian 15:
"If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.
But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead!"
Our hearts are filled with gladness! Let us declare to a wearisome world that there is great Hope found in the resurrection!
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
