Please enjoy these wonderful Resurrection Letter Meditations written by Andrew Peterson to bolster your spirit in the risen Christ. The hearing of these a few weeks ago in concert helped me to understand and “see” the Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Easter much differently than I ever had.
I commend them to your joy and humility.
Here is a sample:
The blue-green earth turns on its axis, rolling Jerusalem into the light of the sun. It turns like a door swinging open, pouring light into a dark room.
His flesh and blood lungs expand, retract; the pupils of his eyes adjust to the buttery light pouring in through the crack in the door.
The muscles in his shoulders flex, his fingers open and fan once, curl into a fist, then relax. His heart pumps steady and strong in his
chest, and the stuff of miracles crackles in the air about him.
His glorified body passes through the grave clothes, and Jesus grins in anticipation of the looks on his friends’ faces when he materializes in the room without bothering to use the door. He swings his feet to the floor, seeing the scars in his flesh and smiling again at the beauty of it all, if he does say so himself. Freedom for the captives. Hope for the weary. The bright unraveling of the curse that man brought upon himself. The valley of the shadow of death now glows with the light of the noonday sun and becomes lush and verdant and green as jade.
Chew on them slowly.
