Because He lives – We can face our tomorrows

Today’s readings attest to the joyous glory of the Risen Christ. It’s so remarkable that Jesus not only prophesied His own suffering, death and resurrection – He accomplished it! With the power of the Risen Christ, bumbling Peter, doubting Thomas, the Apostles and the Church throughout the centuries have overcome obstacles, persecutions and even faced death in order to fulfil His command to bear witness for Him. Paul who previously persecuted the growing church, did a complete u-turn after the Risen Christ revealed Himself to him. As instructed, Paul zealously poured his heart into spreading his new found realization and faith in the Risen Christ to the Gentiles. In Christ Jesus, all prophesies by the Prophets regarding the Messiah are realized and in His resurrection, God’s plan of Salvation is complete. We can place our trust in Jesus, the Alpha and the Omega and accept God’s free gifts of forgiveness and eternal happiness. Having defeated Sin, Satan and Death, Jesus promised to be with us until the “end of time”. All because God truly loves us and wants us to be with Him (John 3: 16). Believers, let’s rejoice in the Risen Christ!
