Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen! We are in the glorious season of the fifty days (Gk., Pentecostarion) from Pascha to Pentecost. Christ Jesus our Lord has been crucified and raised from the dead for our salvation, life, and hope of the eternal Kingdom of God. We continue to celebrate the Resurrection especially during this season concentrating on the Savior's work to destroy death by His own death. He who was rich became poor for our sake, that we who are poor might be made rich in Him (2 Cor. 9). He being the very nature God emptied Himself and became obedient to death on the Cross that He be subsequently exalted and glorified having been raised and seated at the right hand of God the Father (Phil. 2). We who are baptized into Christ have died with Him and have been raised with Him to newness of life (Rom. 6). This is Pascha - the Passover of God - in which we pass from death to life in Jesus Christ, and we are sealed with the Holy Spirit who confirms us in this new life to the glory of God the Father.
