On this Easter Sunday, our journey takes us to the empty tomb. When crucified Jesus is raised from the dead, he thereby sets in motion a commissioning of his followers to go, show, and tell the world the truth—God is determined to raise up the world, to defeat death, and to conquer evil in order that God’s good intentions for the world might be completely fulfilled. Easter was therefore an occasion for the sending of the disciples forth to live deep lives as a sign of what God is up to, first in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and then in the defeat of evil and death. Living deeply as a follower of the resurrected Christ is to be an ambassador of the resurrection.
