He is risen indeed!


I think back over Easter Sundays I have known, probably seventy of them to one degree of awareness or another and exactly 43 of them since I got serious about following Christ. It’s the one time each year where we as a professing Christians are intentionally encouraged to think hard about the meaning of the cross and the resurrection.

I will try to focus on the Cross this Easter Sunday and make it an occasion to realize more completely that I really am on the winning side, even as I see Christianity experiencing a diminution of influence on our culture and society. Perhaps we should think of ourselves as a remnant, chosen by God and placed where we are to provide our neighbors and our sick nation a glimpse of the Kingdom of God on earth. Are we, am I, up to the task?

He is risen indeed!

    Okay… so you were 38… now you need to tell us exactly what happened when you were 38 that made you serious about following Christ. Your blog followers would love to hear it. I have heard the short version, I think, maybe. Thoughts?
