In the Glow of Resurrection

The Resurrection truth glows with the Power of God’s love. Like the waters in Cana’s wedding vessels, we who worship the God who rescued us see our Lord’s face and blush at such radiance.

The afterglow of Christ’s resurrection offers hope to all who sit in darkness. Notice how ancient prophesies reference wealth as a gift of the Spirit. “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see. The meek shall obtain fresh joy in the Lord, and the poor among mankind shall exult in the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 29:18–19)

Many stewards respond to God’s gift and live in the glimmer of Creations’ First-Fruits. They make life’s decisions as living icons, seeing the blaze in the empty tomb’s grace, and are compelled not to keep it to themselves. (2 Corinthians 6:1)

Yet none of us can withstand life’s temptations like our Savior did. Fears and lack of confidence turn us inward, as if the world beyond our homes loses priority. Yet through Word and Sacrament God’s Spirit stokes eternity’s embers within us. When it ignites, our lives reflect God’s light near and far.

Many hearts are bound by despair. Yet compelling news promised through Isaiah speaks directly to our despair. “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.” (Isaiah 35:5–6)

The resurrections’ glow enables we who are poor in spirit to exult the One who redeems and reconciles slaves. A freedom brought by the giver of life tastes so sweet to people who formerly confessed spiritual slavery. As the flames of God’s victory over death shine in a captive heart, its miracle of release turns the captive into a light-bearer to the world.

The glow of resurrection offers a light to our path fruitful service. It guides our journey and illuminates good works to honor and glorify “Our Father.” In this Glow, His will is done on earth, even as it is in Heaven.
