Exhortation: Easter Catechism

Brother and Sisters, Paul writes that the resurrected Christ … must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. Let me provide for you a short Easter catechism. Paul says that Christ, who is now reigning, must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. Question #1: Are all Christ’s enemies under his feet now? Answer: No. Christ’s enemies have not all been conquered or destroyed. Question #2 When will Christ ultimately bring all his enemies under his feet? Answer: When the last enemy death is destroyed. Question #3 When will death be destroyed? Answer: At the end of history when all enemies are under his feet.

This is a simple catechism with powerful implications. This morning we celebrate the beginning of this conquering. In the resurrection, Christ begins to put every enemy under his feet and He will continue to do so until the end of history.  This is the hope of those who are his friends and who are now reigning with him. This is our hope. Thanks be to God.
