In the shadow of the love and forgiveness of the cross, the light of the Resurrection brings forth a new reality for all those who believe in Jesus. The fact that Jesus is Risen changes everything. It is the promise that we are a New Creation, that we are no longer called sinners but friends. Through faith in Jesus the reality of our identity is that we are saints, a people chosen to be the children of God who will reign with Christ when he returns to set all things new and right. With this new identity we are empowered to face all the lies and attacks that besiege our minds, hearts and spirits, and live in lockstep with the God who defines reality forever.
