The church’s mission, then, is to make Jesus known. Easter morning is a reminder that Christ has risen and that we should live as if aroused from slumber.

Wake up, church! Wake up, body parts that have fallen asleep and must be shaken back into circulation. Let’s throw off the bedsheets of apathy. Let’s climb off the mattresses of comfort and convenience. Let’s rise and bring the whole world back to life by declaring, “Christ is risen from the dead!”

Alleluia! Christ is risen indeed.
