Christians believe in resurrection as a way of life. We may not be very good at it, but with God’s help, we try. We believe that God will one day answer the prayer that Jesus taught all of his followers to pray. One day God’s kingdom will come, God’s will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We believe that the resurrected Jesus will return and that true love will win and last forever.
So the next time you are at a wedding and someone begins to read those words – don’t let your eyes glaze over. Don’t whisper to your neighbour, ‘I give it a year.’ Don’t mouth along with your lips while your heart is impervious, but allow the high calling of love, in a world that so desperately needs it, to remind you again to always trust, always hope, always persevere.
