“The hard work is over, says Luther. Christ has done everything for our salvation. It’s done! And, Luther says, it is as though our resurrection has already taken place in Jesus,” said the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, who quotes Martin Luther in his 2013 Easter video message. “Whatever you face in this Easter season … know that Christ is yours, and ours is eternal life.” Christ is risen. He is risen, indeed. Alleluia!
