new life, birds nest

The resurrection of Jesus is not simply a pledge of a new life in the future, but rather an affirmation that the new life Jesus has promised has already begun. St. Paul once urged the new Christians in Corinth to allow God to be “everything in all of you.” The resurrection of Jesus shows the type of life toward which God’s grace and mercy will always lead each of us—if we allow that.
