is the week where we reflect on the most powerful stories of conflict in
Scripture.In order to be a big hero you
need to win a big fight.It’s our
experience in life, and we see it in almost every work of literature.
we see in the Easter story is the epic battle between the all loving Creator
God against the incredible power of the loves of self and the world. And it
seems, for a time that the forces of darkness and pain have won.Now it
was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the
ninth hour (Luke 23:44).
time, both in the stories recorded in the Gospels, and in our own lives in
times of temptation and trial, it does seem like the powers of darkness have
succeeded in taking away the joy of our lives.And that’s when we are supposed to remember the next part of the
story.On Easter morning the women found
the tomb empty.Life and joy had won out
over darkness and pain.And we are left
with the assurance that if He can win this battle, He has the power to help us
win all of ours, if we but ask for His help.
