Resurrection Day

Christ's mighty resurrection
   Startles us to say
We're at an intersection--
   Death and life--today.

So, will we turn and follow
   Christ in paths of life,
Or still be empty, hollow,
   Dead in sin and strife?

The choice of most is darkness
   Blacker than the night
Instead of free forgiveness--
   Christ and truth and light.

Now, what will be your answer?
   Tell me what you'll say--
Rejecting Christ in anger?
   Or life in Him today?

Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified...Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:36, 38 ESV)

If you think you can merely give no answer, listen to this sermon from my pastor today (available in video or just audio--also available in Spanish).
