The morning that changed everything.
When death was defied
And the gravest injustice
Was simultaneously the greatest redemption.
The ultimate come back story
Where a man who claimed to be God
Came back with the receipts.
Larger than life,
His Person looms over human history
His story told and retold over millennia
Yet never losing its potency.
One part of the world turns its back on Him
While another awakens to the reality of Christ,
One generation tells the next of this Jesus
That they too might walk with Him.
Born poor, yet He acquired a security
No human circumstance could ever muster,
No political office
Yet He has radicalised billions.
More than an underdog
Christ had the power to withhold his own life
So His was a death by self-restraint,
And yet, powerful as He is,
He chooses to sit with the weak in darkness.
Bearing our burden
Shouldering our weakness
The bullet meant for us, pierced His heart.
And now with His scars
His body bears the marks of our freedom.
The greatest Lover men will ever know
The dearest Friend with whom our hearts will ever commune,
The Ancient One
As intimate with the human condition today
As ever before-
He is the Risen Christ.
