CHRISTO ANESTE! Christ Is Risen!

My grandfather would have greeted me this morning shouting Christo aneste! (Χριστός ἀνέστη, Christ Is Risen!) expecting me to respond Alithos aneste! (Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη, He Is Risen Indeed)! This Greek Orthodox greeting echoes in some form or fashion all over the world this Easter morning. Matt Maher invites us to ask where is death’s victory today?

Where is your victory, Death?
Where is your sting, Death?
(1 Corinthians 15:55 CEB)

What new thing is God birthing in you today? Where is Jesus showing up in the midst of your life offering grace-filled possibility?
