As we celebrate Easter Sunday with a look at the miracle of the Empty Tomb, we must ask ourselves, why did God choose THIS miracle – the resurrection – to occur? In fact, it is the one miracle that affects each one of us. Jesus comes back, and he meets each of us where we are. God turns the situation of death around and brings life out of it. Can God turn any situation around? God turned around the lives of the disciples – a bunch of the most opinionated, argumentative, frightened and doubtful people of their time – and he can do the same for us. Jesus meets us all where we are and offers us the gift of grace, not because we deserve it or because we’ve earned it, but actually, because we DON’T deserve it!
John 20:19-30 & 21:15-19.
