Third Sunday of Easter
Every step of the way
In Luke’s gospel, an effect of the Resurrection is that the Risen One opens the eyes of his disciples to see how the scripture they’d always known had all along been pointing to Jesus and his Resurrection. For Jesus and the early believers, what we know as the Hebrew scriptures were the only texts they knew. But now, having come to believe in what God had done in Christ, those scriptures take on new richness and meaning. Having walked closely with Jesus since Ash Wednesday, have you felt yourself drawn deeper into your own life by the ancient stories of Lent and Easter? Have you come to see how God has been with you every step of the way? How does the Resurrection continue to change you?
Today’s readings: Acts 3:13-15, 17-19; 1 John 2:1-5a; Luke 24:35-48 (47). “Peace be with you.”
