To the victor go the spoils.
In light of this Resurrection Sunday, I commend the following piece by Peter J. Leithart: "It Really Happened." (HT Ron)
Here's a portion to pique your interest:
"If it really happened, then we've got a load of work, because not everyone has heard the news that God has conquered death. Jesus is King and Lord, and He sends us out to announce that He rules. He establishes the church to be the first form and bearer of His kingdom. He intends to overcome all evil and sin, all injustice and wickedness, and calls us in the power of His resurrection to share in His war against all that damages His good creation."
