Easter Sunday

This is what I wrote for Easter Sunday.  Hope you guys enjoy it:

My Lord and Master,

Who can comprehend your worth?  Who is righteous enough to look upon your face?  Surely you transcend all things, you permeate the very fabric of space and time, you know our substance.  Who can hide from you?

Let us cling upon your hope, the victory of the cross, the knowledge of your return.  Let us come to you with undefiled hearts.

You overwhelm us with your presence; who can bear it?  Your being has changed our very nature.  Do upon your people as you have said through your prophet: I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh (Ezek. 36:26).

Teach us how to partake in your presence, to believe and eat of your flesh and blood, that we may live.  As you claim, “I am the Bread of Life.”  By taking in your death and your resurrection, we have now seen that you make life possible — Be glorified in the Father.

Take our lives and consecrate it to your service.  Our lives, though small, are not passed over by you.  Fill our hearts with the power of your Spirit, that in the fullness of your presence, we may do what is right in your eyes.  Open our hearts and our minds to your will we pray.

Amen.
