The Risen and Rising Christ

For the spiritually alive Christian, Easter's glad cry, "Christ is risen!" is a recurring call to action. He finds the lasting gladness of Easter by celebrating the risen Christ through hourly becoming involved in spiritual good. For him, our Lord's rejection of death certifies the triumph of good and the downfall of all evil—evil in the individual, evil in the world—through the ceaseless working of what Paul proclaimed as "Christ in you, the hope of glory." Col. 1:27

Christ in us. How marvelous! There is an unquenchable divine influence in every one of us, present and active to impel our involvement with good and save us from involvement with evil. Christ is in us, in our midst this day and in this place as surely as on the hills of Galilee two thousand years ago.
