When we meditate on the meaning of Easter, we are reminded that the incarnation of the divine in Jesus Christ became more than just a role model for teaching us how to live, and became more than our intercessor for the Father. We are reminded that when the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, we share our spiritual and human DNA with Jesus…by him, and with him and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, and we become one with the Father and the Son.
In what better way could God express his unconditional love for us than by sharing his Spirit incarnated in Jesus and in us? Easter reminds us that Jesus’ resurrection is not a miracle. God can work miracles without us. No, For Easter to matter, it requires us to join Jesus in his suffering, death, and resurrection during this Holy Week… and all the holy weeks of our lives.
