An Easter thought

Maybe Christians have been too wrapped up in the modern worldview that says we have to prove everything scientifically. I hear many people talk about the historical fact of the resurrection - as if it matters more that our faith is founded on facts, than that we let this fact impact on our behaviour.

When we place the resurrection in the past, we forget that somehow it is meant to apply to us in all we do.We are called to view the world through resurrection eyes; to see the Kingdom coming here and now; to cast off the old strictures and structures of a world of sin.

The resurrection is a metaphor for how we all should live.

It's not that it's not a fact. It's just that it's more than that.
