It seems, perhaps, that Christians have forgotten that God has always been, and is still very much in the business of reviving and restoring, and He is still in the business of “rolling rolling” stones.
All our wounds, the places we have hurt others and the places that we have been hurt, can be found there in the wounds in his hands and feet.
Reflecting on those moments, I think I experienced what some call the “already-not yet,” the wonderful truth and the hard heartache of the Easter season.
Let us reflect on the strength and bravery of Mary and how her actions changed redemptive history.
Let us contemplate what it means to die to our old selves and bear the name of Christ.
Take a moment of silence to meditate upon Christ's sacrifice for us.
