In the company of the Risen One

 

Easter is a great celebration for the Christians. Jesus is risen. He has over-come the power of sin and death. Faith in the risen Jesus has moved you from the power of sin and death to be the heir to the kingdom of heaven.

The life of a Christian in these times is not always victorious or easy walking on the water. Many of us may wander more in sadness of Long Friday than in the new joy of Easter morning. Fortunately, the pandemic has begun to ease, but the war in Ukraine has brought with it new global anxiety. And everyone has the worries of their own lives on top of everything.

The risen Jesus has promised to be with us every day until the end of the world. (Matt. 28:20). Jesus has also promised to prepare the way to heaven. He knows best what your path has been and what it will be. In all that, joy and sorrow, he has promised to be with you, to the end, and finally take you to the joyful festivities of heaven.

In the company of the Risen One, we are also called to walk side by side each other. “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” (Rm. 12:15). Some-times your own worries can be diminished by having someone with whom you can share it. The joy and smile of another person can be contagious too. We are all needed.

 Blessed Easter time!
