Christ is risen indeed! But what does it mean to you? The good news of the resurrection was proclaimed to the disciples by the women who saw Him alive, but the news only added to their confusion. However, something dramatic happened when Christ revealed Himself to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, the ten, Thomas, and then Paul (Saul). All these people believed and experienced Christ differently. The fears and doubts that crippled them for days disappeared. Later, when they were filled with the Holy Spirit, they had only one purpose: to live for Jesus Christ and only one work to do: to tell others the Good News. The implication of Easter to us today is that we let the power that raised Jesus back to life raise us above the sinful pleasures that have trapped us. As the risen Lord reveals Himself to us and we allow the Holy Spirit to fill us, we will have only one purpose: live for Jesus and only one work to do: leading others to Christ.
