The “Day After”

The Day After Easter we move into the Easter season. That is the six weeks after Easter when, faced with the empty tomb and the missing body, we focus on the Scriptures that testify that Christ is risen. Calendar wisdom, “The refiner is never very far from the mouth of the furnace when his gold is in the fire. By C.H. Spurgeon ‘…I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will all on my name and I will answer them: I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ;The Lord is our God.’”     Yesterday we looked at the idea of Jesus, MIA, ie the empty tomb, that for many grows into the reality that He is risen. As we learn to trust not eyes, ears, nose, finger and touch but learn to trust and navigate with scripture, heart, soul, and prayer. God’s gold is refined and I think it often feels like trial by fire. In the face of Covid-19, tornadoes, and financial distress, people expressed love, concern, and compassion yesterday. Our lives now testify our faith and belief that Jesus is no longer MIA but is risen! Praise the Lord!
