This day, of all days, is a time to consider how we might love one another. A time to step aside from petty disagreements and quarrels, a time to abandon the works of the flesh that make themselves all too evident among us.
The Lord of glory died on a cross, and we want to insist on justice.
Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ is coming again.
Like Him, we are called to take up our respective crosses and follow Him. This is not simply an exercise of unworthiness, of suffering for the sake of suffering. Baptized into Him, we die to rise and walk in newness of life.
Hallelujah! Christ is Risen!
