If there is an encouragement to be drawn from the events of the Holy Week, it stems from the fact that the entire thing is so horrendously unfair and unjust. Jesus spoke only truth, yet he was murdered by those who should have already known the truth.
There are times in life when truth seems lost. Seems buried, hidden, and forever trapped behind an unmovable stone. Times when even those who should readily support the truth prefer to shut it down, and we don't know why.
Even for Jesus Himself, this was true.
Yet, Hell has no victory and Death has lost its sting. Mercy, Love, Truth and Justice will not and can not remain trapped in a tomb. These will always have the greater victory in the end. What appeared to be a stunning defeat at the cross was a necessary path to glorious, eternity changing Resurrection.
#Easter reminds us of this, and that in this world we will have troubles.
But take heart.
Jesus is alive.
And He has overcome the world.
