Even though he died in 1926, I still know who Harry Houdini was. The reason I know is because he was one of the most famous escape artists to ever live.
To try to confine Houdini, people would bind him in chains, bury him, and they would even sew him up in canvas bags and throw him in a river. It was said that Houdini “could escape from anything except your memory.” In the end though, not even Houdini could escape death.
Tomorrow is Easter, and it is a day that we remember the One who is greater than Houdini. It is a day of celebration as we commemorate His resurrection.
It is this triumphant act over death and the grave that gives us hope.
Have a happy Easter!
