He is Risen!

Walking Away “The deep darkness vanished into ordinary daylight, and the mystery of God was only made more splendid.”

Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

“…he has clothed me in garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10

Nothing could have prepared me for the emotional impact of walking our daughter down the aisle, her arm in mine, in order to ‘give her away’ on behalf of our family, to the Groom, our new son-in-law. She was magnificently beautiful and in some way, never more our daughter than at the very moment that she would now become part of a new family. But for our Emily, Caleb, the Groom had come, and he wasn’t to be denied his Bride.

It is Easter morning.

Jesus died and He has Risen. Our glorious Groom is alive.

His Bride, the Church, anxiously awaits Him. We are arrayed in His Salvation and Righteousness in spite of ourselves. His ‘banner over us is love.’

He will not be denied.

Jesus is King.

He is Risen!

peace.
