You’re Included in the Resurrection Morning   Leave a comment

Jesus’ victory over the grave is, of course, the central event of the Easter story. But there are many other inspiring aspects of this narrative as well. For me, the resurrection morning spotlights the ability we each have to rededicate ourselves to serving God. And for us, this may mean rising above character flaws and accepting forgiveness. Simon Peter is the preeminent example of this. 

Peter was one of Jesus’ first disciples, a humble fisherman. He had the great privilege of being invited by Jesus to follow and learn from him. But working alongside Jesus didn’t make Peter a flawless student.  … We can all relate to Peter. Although we strive to be steadfast students of Christ Jesus’ teachings, sometimes our shortfalls feel like an obstacle to our most well-intentioned work. …

This Easter season, realize your potential to rise above whatever the obstacle to your mission is. Through Christ, the true idea of God, you can lay aside shortfalls and missteps and see that you, along with everyone else, are included in the redemption of resurrection morning.
