Beyond the empty tomb and the first encounters with the risen Christ we hear about on Easter, the reality of the resurrection opens into a deeper and more powerful understanding the place of Christ in the world, even the universe. In the the first chapter of Colossians, the author opens up our eyes to see the bigger picture revealed in the resurrection. It is a revelation that brings Christ right into our laps.
Perhaps we all wish that God would give us a sign; our own personal burning bush or miraculous deed that would chase away all fears and doubt. Signs and miracles, however, do not lead to faith. Faith comes from a much more trustworthy source. Jesus told Peter that it was this deep trust in God upon which the Church would rest. That kind of faith is available to you.
