The Lord lives! Blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation.
Today's psalm is a reminder that Easter is not a single day, but an entire season. It's called The Great Fifty Days, and it begins on Easter Sunday and ends on the Day of Pentecost. In fact, the word Pentecost comes from the Greek word for fiftieth.
So here on Easter Monday, I am able to say, The Lord lives! with no less enthusiasm than I shouted He is risen! yesterday.
You live, O Lord! You have conquered death and spread the promise of life through all creation! Blessed be the rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation! Amen.
