Resurrection Life

Posted by Fr. Tere on 04/16/2017

We know Jesus Christ because he is alive, and he calls us by name. “Joe” or “Mary” or “Alita” or “Mike”. Each of you who knows him as Lord and Savior has heard him call you by name, because you are not only his subject and part of the Bride of Christ, but you are also his brother or sister, and he loves you.

TetelstaiWe celebrate today that Jesus is, indeed, risen from the dead. He said on Friday, while still hanging on the cross, Jesus cried out, “Tetelestai!” usually translated, “It is finished.” But as I said on Good Friday, it is more of an accounting term meaning, “The debt has been paid in full!” – but the debt of Adam, the debt of sin, the debt of rebellion against God. The debt for all the sin in the universe has been paid in full, and, with his resurrection, God put his stamp of approval on all that Jesus taught while on earth, and all that he has done.

Jesus Christ is risen today, alleluia! We have been given the chance to move from being upside down in a broken world, insisting that we can do it on our own, or we can choose to humble ourselves, to become servants of the King of kings, the Lord or lords. When we realize we cannot do this on our own, he is beside us, whispering, “Tom” or “Kim” or “LaNora” or “Louis”. Come you blessed of my Father and inherit the Kingdom I have purchased for you – with my blood.

Happy Pascha! He is, indeed, risen.He is risen
