Tomorrow, we celebrate the greatest victory in the history of humanity. And while the victor himself had very little to gain by winning the battle, he sacrificed himself for those who continue to reject him today. This battle was not one that we could have won on our own. It would have been as if a lone rebel stood at the wall of a tsunami shaking his puny fist as the torrent of water swept him away. Even the smallest after-shock from this spiritual warfare would sear the very flesh from our skulls. Would you have done it? Would you have peacefully laid down your dignity, your right to all of the riches and power in the world, and your very life for those who spat in your face? Could you make the sacrifice, knowing full well that future generations would try to explain away your creation through their own childlike reasoning? That they would deny your actions, your authority, possibly even your existence?
The Christ, the King, chose to. Tomorrow, we celebrate the greatest victory in the history of humanity.
