“Behold, I am making all things new” Revelation 21:6
This promise is one of two things. First, it may be false, something too good to be true. If so, then Easter is wishful religious thinking. Easter is disappointing, meaningless, pure sentiment; kind of like saying of a dying person, “He’s going to a better place” when you have no real reason to believe that it is actually true. If this is the case, then Easter is a supreme waste of time in relationship to real life.
Consider, on the other hand, what it means if the promise is true. If so, we are led to the most radical, life-changing perspective of all: HOPE. We hope because this life and its losses are not the end. We hope because our God will replace, renew, and restore us with love, joy, peace, freedom and life. If this is the case, then Easter becomes a supreme disruption of every relationship and every circumstance in daily our lives.
The Resurrection of Christ is our assurance, our guarantee, and our absolute confidence that the promise of “all things new” is true. Join us for our Good Friday and Easter services as we engage HOPE, remembering Christ’s death and celebrating Christ’s resurrection with the “hope that does not disappoint” (Romans 5:5).
