A Royal Declaration

This week our kitchen staff continues our journey through the colors of spring.  Our seasonal rainbow has landed us on the color purple - the color of kings.

The unfathomable surprise of Easter morning was preceded by three days of denial, at least from man's perspective. His royal nature, hidden in the tomb. His disciples dumbfounded at the turn of events.
But Christ's resurrection was, indeed, a royal declaration.
Nothing says "I'm King of the world" like raising yourself from the dead.

We didn't see it coming.  We could not have conceived, even though he showed us (through Lazarus), even though He told us (at the last supper) that death would not hold Him. 

Heaven caught us off guard at the empty tomb.  It's here the goodness of God revealed that it is better than we could've imagined. He's not just any king, He's the King of Kings. 

And it's here that Christ reminds me to live with hopeful expectation.  

You never know the places He may break forth.  
What if we considered - even EXPECTED- that this same King would breakthrough places in our lives that seem dead - and bring new life?  What if His goodness in these areas is better than you could have imagined?

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." 1 Peter 1:3

Expect the unexpected.
Let hope arise!
