Lying before me lay a sharp turn in the road, like 90 degree sharp turn. I had previously forgotten about this deathtrap as my mind was still pondering my new job. Once before I had forgotten about that turn and nearly wrecked. But that SUV, that slow cumbersome SUV served as a warning, a buffer, a guardian angel to my near tragedy. Sometimes the inconvenience we face is actually God stepping in the way.
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.
