A Bold Statement

The resurrection
is God’s triumphant
proclamation that
death is not the end,
that injustices of the past
are not forgotten,
that evil will not
for ever triumph.

Moments of Glory

Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved
said to Peter, “It is the Lord!”
(John 21:7)

We don’t see Him, nor does it happen every day of the week, or every time we read the Scriptures or on every occasion that we do some work for Him, but from time to time in the midst of life’s studies, griefs, and duties, true to His promise, He comes to us and manifests Himself in a way that is overwhelmingly real to our hearts. We sense the glow of His presence, the vibrancy of His life. We hear with the heart’s inner ear the rustling of the Shepherd’s robes beside us, and we say with deep conviction, “It is the Lord!”
