The message of Easter is that Jesus Christ lives. To say that He “has risen” or “was raised” is only a part of the story. Jesus Christ lives just as surely as He spoke to Mary, met with his disciples in the upper room, comes in the water of baptism, or teaches in the words of confirmation and Sunday School classes. Jesus lives.
Perhaps one of the more powerful stories from scripture about the living Christ is pictured in the large stained glass window on the north side of our sanctuary at Grace Lutheran Church.
