Resurrection

It was finished.
There was nothing left to do
but take down Jesus' body
and hide it quickly
from mind, from view.
The terror of the tomb
closed the matter,
once for all,
wrapping sin
for its descent
into down-falling darkness
where never light had been.
Even from the Upper Room
no one had known our own
souls would be exhumed.
But Christ arose.
And with Him angels rolled
away the tombstone,
shroud, and doubt –
releasing all
who wanted out.

On Jesus' Resurrection

Hopefully this poem might inspire a sermon!

Just thought some here might like to post some sermons and exchange ideas. I am not really a "preacher" but I do "fill in" sometimes. Now I if I can figure out a way to post them.

Just thought it might be good to have a place for people to post sermons.
