The Crazy Upside Down, Inside Out World of Jesus - Happy Easter!

Lord, from the Garden of Eden's original sin of pride and thirst for power, you turned it all upside down and inside out in your cross and resurrection. In the cross you showed that power is found in the least, broken, suffering, poor and ultimately, the humble. You showed that the power of humility is the opposite of the power of pride. You, single handily redeemed all of humankind from its original sin of pride, haughtiness and arrogance that separated us from God and from each other and made us enemies of one another and God.

Therefore, God has highly exalted you and bestowed on you the name that is above every other name. In the resurrection you defined a new power, one that is not based on manipulation, deceit and authoritative control of others. No, you showed that although you are all-powerful, your muscle does not come from a place of pride but is born out of humility and brokenness.

Lord, you were willing to come to the earth and painfully demonstrate to us exactly who God is and what he is made of. God, in his rightful power and might of the resurrection, achieves such through his humility, forgiveness, everlasting love, kindness and compassion of the cross.
