He is risen! He is risen, indeed!
This is the time-honored way Christians greet one another on
Easter morning. The news of that April morning so long ago has
invaded billions of lives now. The resurrection of Jesus makes
an ultimate difference for all believers. The Season of Easter
is in stark contrast to the preceding season of Lent, with its
muted decor and symbols of Christ's suffering and death. Easter
bursts into our lives full of color, flowers, upbeat music,
and reminders of the new life we share in Christ. Not only are
the sights around us energizing and uplifting, the lilies and
other flowers touch our sense of smell and heighten our awareness
that Jesus is alive!
