We are celebrating something incredibly amazing, God's intervention in human affairs.
We celebrate almighty God himself choosing to make a place for us at his house forever. We celebrate almighty God choosing to change the definition of death from something that is an end, a finish, to something that is a doorway instead, a gate leading to an incredible fullness of life.
We celebrate triumph, victory, conquest. The conquest that we commemorate tonight is the greatest conquest of all. It is the triumph over death itself. Human ingenuity and technology will never make that conquest.
So what does this mean for you and me?
