Raised with Christ


This evening's sunset.
I used chapter three of St. Paul's Letter to the Colossians for prayer this morning to help me think about what difference the Resurrection of Jesus makes in my life. Paul says, "If you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God....you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God." Jesus died out of this world of sin and darkness and rose into a new life of love and light, and he took us with him. We don't have to wait until we die. That new life is not off somewhere in the sky. It is available to us right here, right now. Another dimension. The risen Jesus is the portal through which we enter. He makes us belong to God, makes us holy in this Holy Week.
