‘It is finished’… but it is not over
We are a forgetful people.
We prepared our hearts in anticipation of Easter. We reflected on the cross and its significance. We felt the long, heavy pause between Good Friday and Easter Sunday—waiting for the discovery of an empty grave and a risen Savior. We heralded the triumphant resurrection of Jesus with the notes of a trumpet and the splendor of the flower-adorned cross. Many of us enjoyed an Easter feast with family and friends, hunted candy-filled eggs, and consumed our favorite fare that we had given up for Lent.
