God never intended for the fragile things of this world to retain the pristine condition of a newborn. The living God means for us to live. And living inevitably brings with it wear and breakage.

And so grace reaches its climax by mending fragile, beloved things. That’s what we mean by resurrection.

In the resurrection, God mends the shattered Jesus. And in Jesus’ resurrection, we see the promise of our own.
