Kendall Harmon has posted an excerpt of the Rev. Patrick Allen’s Easter Sermon – what a WONDERFUL summary of the truth of what Christ’s resurrection means – “normal is dead.” Hallelujah!
Easter means that Jesus is alive and normal is dead. Nothing, not even death, is certain, and in fact death is defeated, has met its match in Love Himself.
The tomb is empty – empty as in vacant; empty as in powerless. Death – life’s great certainty; the most normal, expected, routine, trustworthy thing going, in fact a sure thing, has come untrue in Christ.
