the greatest truth of all time

Lewis talks about the greatest of all truths today in A Year with C.S. Lewis.

He tells us that the apostles were all witnesses to the risen Jesus. And the fact of the resurrection is what makes the gospels good news.

Jesus risen is the fact that makes our faith worth having. The fact that Jesus defeated sin and death, coming back to life again as the first to do so among all of us... is the most important fact in the history of the world.

Unless Jesus is risen, nothing we believe or do as Christians amounts to anything. We are all fools... and not the good kind.

But... the fact is... Jesus IS risen. He swallowed sin and death whole, transforming them into the door to eternal life.

Thank You, God, for dying and rising again.
