There are a lot of questions swirling. When will this all be over? Is there really light at the end of the tunnel? Is there any hope?
As I was thinking through our current situation, I realized these must have been similar questions to ones the disciples were asking each other on that long weekend 2,000 years ago following the crucifixion of Christ. They didn’t know if they had just spent the last three years of their lives following a fake. They didn’t know whether they would all lose their lives for following him. They hadn’t realized that Christ had been telling them all along why He came. They thought they knew Him. They thought they understood Him. They thought they knew what the future looked like. But then suddenly, all they saw was uncertainty and death.
There may be seasons of our life, or even this current season, where this is how we feel. A month ago, a lot of us probably thought we knew what the future looked like, well to some extent, but now each one of us is facing realities that we never saw coming.
But we know something that the disciples didn’t quite understand.
Our Savior is risen and He rules over ALL things.
Yes, even this virus. And even the circumstances in our lives that feel out of our control.
Our Easter celebrations will look different this year. But as you celebrate this week, I pray that you know in a new way the certain hope of our risen savior Jesus Christ. You can rest knowing that the answer to ultimate questions of life are known. We worship a risen Savior who holds us and the world in His hand.
From all of us at Family Policy Alliance of Kansas, Happy Resurrection Day!

P.S. By a vote of 5-2, the Legislative Coordinating Council, yesterday, revoked the governor’s executive order that restricted gatherings at churches. While proper social distancing protocols should still be followed voluntarily, it is inappropriate for the Governor and Democratic leadership to single out churches based on events that occurred before the stay-at-home order.
