Canon David’s Thought of the Week

Have you ever noticed that scripture has no account of the actual event of Christ’s rising. We are told of the confusion and excitement of finding the tomb empty. Later we get accounts of the apparitions of the Risen Lord to various disciples. It is these appearances that enables the disciples to make the huge step of faith from following the man Jesus of Nazareth, to believing that he was the Son of God who triumphed over death.  Pope Paul the Vl said ‘Easter is the unique and sensational event on which the whole of human history turns’.

 Christ died to rise again, so that his Father will be glorified. We too are brought back to true life in Christ. For the resurrection of Jesus from the dead demonstrates God’s ultimate power over all forces, including death. By His resurrection, Jesus opens the door of eternity to all believers.

For belief in the resurrection is the corner stone or our Christian faith, that is  why we have 50 days of Eastertide to celebrate the resurrection!

I hope and pray that the Risen Lord will reawaken in all of us the joy of knowing and loving Our Lord. May the power of the resurrection help us to roll back all stones – so that the past can be healed and full life restored.

By dying he has destroyed our death and by rising he has restored our life. Alleluia !

Canon David Hopgood
