A very, very good morning to you all! It is a good morning because we are celebrating the historical fact of the resurrection of Jesus and what that means to each one of us: to the universe, creation itself, and all of humanity. To say it is a “good” morning has a very specific connotation today, more than any other day, because that word “good” in the scriptures can mean beautiful. It’s a beautiful morning, no matter the weather outside or anything else. So this *morning we are celebrating. Something Beautiful! In the sacrifice of Jesus, at his death, He took upon Himself all our sin, all our brokenness, and all our history. Not only that, but also our futures as well. Something beautiful has happened, and contrary to news reports, it is happening and will happen. All because of the reality of Jesus rising from the dead. Some of you who are here are looking for something new, something more fulfilling, something real! It is found in Jesus and the meaning of His life, death, and resurrection. Which explains the meaning of all life.
