This is the day that Christ broke the shackles of sin and darkness and brought us into the kingdom of light – we are no longer slaves to sin, we have been redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
This is the day when the sting of death lost its power; no longer able to frighten us into deep caverns of despair.
This is the day when the agony of loss was exchanged for the presence of peace. This is the day when condemnation was condemned and a new creation was brought forth through Christ's victory on the cross.
This is the day when all men and women who have ever wondered if God could still love them after all they've done – this is the day they see the answer in the person of Jesus Christ.
This is Easter Sunday. The day when those who have placed loved ones in the ground, or scattered ashes in the wind are reminded that death is not the end; but a transition.
This is the day Jesus was dying for. This is the day when death gave way to victory. This is Resurrection day – the day our world changed forever - our day of hope.
This is Sunday! This is the day that I have waited for all week long and the day that I have anticipated to come. This is the day we have the privilege of being welcomed into the very presence of our Risen Saviour; to rejoice anew with my brothers and sisters in the life-giving resurrection of our Lord.
This is Sunday! Christ the Lord is Risen Today.
