One day, when my son was about four years old, I was playing the sound track to the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. When Judas sang his haunting song, Mark asked, “Why is he so sad?”

“Because he helped some mean people arrest Jesus. When he saw those people were going to put Jesus on a cross and make him die, he was very sorry.”

Mark took that in. Suddenly, he brightened. “Then on Easter, Judas was happy!”

When I recovered from my astonishment, I realized Mark’s take on Easter was perfect. Even Judas–had he not already taken his life–could have been restored to gladness. Today, Jesus’ resurrection life still displaces all that is ugly and wrong in our lives and hearts. That’s something to celebrate!
