“And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.” (Mark 16:6)
“The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. (Psalm 16:5-9)
Our Lord, Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, is our chosen portion. He is our promised land. He gives us the cup of His life giving blood to nourish and sustain us in this earthly life. He gives us a seat at His right hand, securing us with His love and his joy. In Him, we rest secure.
