Alleluia, Christ is Risen!

On Easter Sunday, we remember Christ's resurrection from the dead.

In last year’s series of Lent blogposts on the 39 Articles, Kirsty Birkett wrote on Article 4: Of the Resurrection of Christ, concluding:

“The resurrection is not a doctrine just for the future: Jesus’ resurrection and return in judgement is something that should guide our every moment, as we live day by day, making decisions to do his will rather than ours, loving one another, showing hospitality, disciplining sin and contending for the gospel. The resurrection means that, in the midst of pain and death, we rejoice. We always have reason for rejoicing. Death will soon be no more.”

He is risen indeed, Alleluia!
