Laura spoke on Good Friday about how Easter is the weekend the revolution began.
We live in a world of two governments. The first is a government of death, anger and oppression. It has been in power for a long time and none of us are spared from its destruction.
On the first Easter weekend Jesus kickstarted his revolution to overthrow the government. On Friday he went straight into the death and darkness at its heart. On Sunday he emerged victorious, rising to new life and bringing his revolutionary government of life, forgiveness and freedom.
Today these two governments exist side by side. The old government still seduces and offers false hope, while Jesus’ revolution quietly offers life for today and a radically different future. Every day we each get to choose which government we want to elect. As for me, I say out with the old and in with the new. I want to be found on the side of Jesus’ revolution.
