"Easter is a season of great gladness for those
who know Christ. But for those who are
without “the light of the knowledge of God’s glory”
(2 Corinthians 4:6), there is nothing to rejoice over.
Jesus left us with the great hope and certainty
that He is going to return to bring a new Heaven
and a new earth where, we are told, there will
be no more sorrow, trouble, or death for those
who have believed and followed Him. There
will be trouble, sorrow, and suffering for those who
have neglected or rejected Him. As Christians,
our great task is to obey the command to tell the
whole world about Christ crucified, buried, yet
risen again. My prayer for you during this season
of the year, when we meditate on our Savior’s
great sacrifice for us on the cross, is that you will
be filled with great peace and hope, because
“He is risen!” That is the Good News.
As you follow Christ, are you obeying His command
to tell others that He is risen indeed?"
