The joy of Easter is the peace of Christ. “Peace to you!… Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?” (Luke 24:36–38) Good questions. Why am I troubled? Why do doubts arise in my heart? Christ is risen! There is no need to worry, there is no need to doubt. He has accomplished His task. He has purchased me with His blood. It is indeed finished! I am His. And if I am His then there is certainly nothing to be troubled about.
