The resurrection is the greatest turnabout in time, a reversal of such epic scope that all our yesterdays have been reshaped and all tomorrows made anew. From Friday sundown’s grinding grief to Sunday morning’s glorious light, the balance of the world tipped. We were the people sitting in darkness. Now we greet His rising day. Death and dying lost their grip: life and hope came springing up—out of the ground, within the tomb, above our loss, beyond our sin. Because Christ lives, the world’s dirge will die away; a song of love and grace will be the anthem of the future. Join in the song that never dies: “The Lord has risen—so shall I.” And stay in grace. -Bill Knott
