Separation Anxiety

April 7, 2023


On the cross, Jesus contemplated where God was and what God was doing. Then, Jesus rested for three days in the tomb. Finally, he rose on Easter morning, offering a resounding “YES!” to God’s grace-filled promise of salvation. Our “yes” comes when we look at the nail prints in his hands as did the disciple Thomas, and realize that Jesus has experienced everything we have, and so like Thomas, we can profess, “My Lord and my God!” We may begin our ordeal by exclaiming, “My God, my God, I can’t believe this!”, but we end it with the affirmation: “My Lord and God, I believe!”
