Laugh: For He Has Risen

“Where there is no belief in the soul, there is very little drama… Either one is serious about salvation or one is not. And it is well to realize that the maximum amount of seriousness admits the maximum amount of comedy. Only if we are secure in our beliefs can we see the comical side of the universe.”  -Flannery O’Conner

Laugh, Christian. The grace of our God is greater than all our sin. The power of the Spirit’s call is greater than the power of Wall Street, Madison Avenue, the White House and all the systems of this world. And the strength of God’s Son is greater than everything death, hell and Satan threw at Him. Christ has made a mockery of these things — such a mockery that our fitting response is deep-bellied laughter.

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. — Colossians 2:15
