A Post Easter Reflection
Easter manifested the great split between the secular ground of earth and the sacred canopy of heaven. The incarnation brought Christ to earth to die for the sins of the whole world. Easter, in conjunction with the ascension, sent Jesus through the vaults of the heavens to sit at the right hand of the Father. On the cross Jesus said; "It is finished." The Father said; "Sit my Son" and rule in heaven till your kingdom come!
Easter reminds us of the nature of the supernatural, for with the resurrection and ascension of Jesus something marvelous transpired and something miraculous took place. A mighty miracle materialized, and the world and creation will never be the same. And we should never be the same either.
Jesus, the cosmic Christ, ascended on high in heaven. But He also lives in us here below on earth. For even now though He is transcendent we can experience His immanence with Him and experience fellowship together. We call it worship.
As for those who are "C.E.O. Christians" (Christmas and Easter only) or regular worshipers, we must always remember what the Old Testament prophet reminds us about Him; "I, I am He and there is no other god before Me!"
And as Jesus our great high priest declares; "I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father apart from Me."
Oh.... the wonder of it all!
Serving Him with you
Until He comes for us,
