Tuesday, 4 April of easter week

4 Apr

for Holy Week, an essential question…

essential question: what is wisdom saying to your heart this day?…

wisdom: think on the resurrection…

resurrection is not a reforming or a rebuilding, it a the promise of a new creation, better bodies, cleaner hearts ….

from Romans 4….

‘Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. 17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.
18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.’

hope is not ‘maybe it will happen;’ hope is here in our Lord Jesus’ resurrection …
It will happen

    Thank you for this, Charlie. As we age, more our family and friends who are in Christ leave this earthly life. I struggle sometimes to remember that one day, because of Christ, we will see our loved ones who put their faith in him. My hope needs to be…not maybe…but will.
