Almost a chill, a real physical presence came washing over me as the pastor spoke these words, “If Christ came into our midst”, into this sanctuary this day.
I wanted to turn to look over the smiling faces, looking toward the open door the light streaming in to see our Lord, triumphant, like a bridegroom down the aisle
But I didn’t have to do this for he was here, right here with us in our midst, living in your heart and mine
His presence is what I felt the joy of this Easter morning This is Christ living within me, within you even if for the first time this bright and glorious day.
