Our Risen Savior - Lent, Easter and Beyond
So much of our lives happens at desks and tables. For a very long time, dinner tables have been the place where life gets caught up on - where people who do life together...who truly share their world together have very important discussions. Meals are eaten. Things are revealed that radically change our world. So it is with Jesus... and you.
Light exists all around us, both near and far away. Stars are surely blinding if we were only close enough to see them in their full glory. But when we look in the sky and see only dots of light, they seem too far away to matter. On Easter, the apostles awoke to a completely changed reality.. the power of Eternal Light was fully ON but they could not see it. In time, one by one their Ah-Hah moments came and their world was forever changed. Are you on the lookout for your moment?
It's hard to watch life happen sometimes. People get hurt. People Die. The wicked prosper. Lots of parents get tired of hearing the phrase "It's NOT fair!", and God being first, a father, understands. We complain, "If only" ...fill in the blank. What answers might lie on the other side of our "ifs"?
