Reflection for the Week–April 14

As Easter approaches and we prepare to be more intentionally immersed in the death and resurrection of Christ, may this remarkable event weigh heavily upon us in new and refreshing ways at this time of year. How grateful we are and hopefully growing more to be, that Jesus inaugurated the Kingdom of God, brought salvation to Israel and the world, was victorious over death through the resurrection, and opened the way into deep and everlasting community with God. On this basis, each of us can experience our own release from captivity in Egypt; our own exodus, which will take us through the Promised Land into a new heaven and earth.
