Be grateful for God’s grace; as you have been transformed into a new creation by Easter’s healing action, so walk now in the newness of life. You have been given a share in Christ through the fellowship of faith, by participation in his sacrament, by communion with the Holy Spirit. Strive not only to keep unshaken to the end the principle by which you are grounded in him but also to increase it constantly. Thus may you who, through the privilege of so many gifts, have begun to share in the first resurrection, may make good your eternal right to the second resurrection on the day when you present for recognition so great a pledge in which you trusted. May our Lord Jesus Christ grant you this–he who is our resurrection and our life, who for our sake was dead for three days but now lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
