Planet earth is home to some powerful words. There are sentences that have the power to change your life like, “I forgive you” or, “Will you marry me?” or, “It’s a girl!” or, “the cancer is gone!”
Powerful stuff and life changing for sure. But, those are not world-changing words; your world perhaps, but not all of ours.
There is one sentence that changes the whole world and one day will be the words that set off a global and cosmic transformation. That sentence? The most powerful words in any language? Christ is Risen.
