Jesus didn’t come to help us succeed within the pre-defined rules of a world limited by death. He came to change those rules completely. By appearing alive outside his grave, he won for us a life “outside the box,” one that death can no longer limit. This week we see how life unlimited by death is life free from selfishness. So often the good we do for others easily becomes good we do for ourselves. It’s easy to say the right things and support the right positions not because it actually benefits specific people but because it makes us look virtuous. Because our virtue is secure in the vicarious work of Jesus, we are set free to truly love others. We are free to love our neighbor in need as Jesus has first loved us.
