After talking to a friend, I realized something this Easter: the Cross leads to salvation, but the Resurrection gives us hope for a new life. We often focus on the cross, which is appropriate. But without understanding of the Resurrection, we merely exist as saved dead people.
God planned Resurrection from the start; not just the Resurrection of Jesus but the resurrection of you and me. God planned on bringing recreation and new life again to what died from sin. Its written throughout the Bible, even in the Old Testament.
I had the privilege of working on a video for an Easter Vigil for Asbury Theological Seminary. I must admit, I’m not sure if I’ve ever read the Book of Ezekiel thoroughly, yet after producing this video I’ve come to a wonderfully new perspective on God’s plan.
God redeems and resurrects His creation.
