Oh, Happy Day

Christ was hung on a cross, and later lain in a tomb. But the grave could not hold Him down. He was hung, and lain, but seated at the right hand of the Father. Let me rephrase: He is seated, not hung or lain. Or as I take from the Sedar meal, I see Him reclining and rejoicing in celebration- that when a sinner uses His grace to become a saint or when an infant uses the embrace of a parents arms to find shelter, Christ throws His pierced hands in the air. His hands are raised and rays of light penetrate those holes; a Holy God was wholly other, yet became part of our story; there are holes in his hands but not in His heart. He is holy, pure and wholly pure. He is risen.
