God can give life to the dead, bring light from darkness and create something out of nothing. Many of us simply do not believe that there is nothing sacred about ordinary things and people. There is no mystery in everyday life, and there is no more to this world than what you can see, hold and buy. I will tell you what I tell my children, “The one who dies with the most toys wins” and “Money is God” is a lie. “God loves the world”. Don’t you see an empty tomb changes everything. How can you say resurrection is a false hope? Sometimes the most important facts are the hardest to accept. A man can come back from the dead. So I refuse to believe despair is stronger than hope, power is superior to compassion and might makes right. Why? The life and death of a first-century Jew named Jesus makes a difference. It would therefore be foolish to say that death has the last word. There is too much pain and suffering in the world today. But for many of us, this is not the ultimate reality – Easter is coming!
