Easter


This, the week of Passover and Easter, we turn our thoughts to Jesus. He came as a baby. He lived as man. He died as a criminal. He rose and lives even now. Sitting at the right hand of God, his glory fills the earth. Even now, his people, his church, dwell here on this big blue marble called earth. Use this post as an invitation to a deeper knowing of God…

 

 

 



    The Living Dead

    Humanity, created in God’s image
    Yet, We parody humanity.
    Paul quoted, “‘All things are permissible,’”
    then said, “but not all things build up.”

    We say, “All things are optional.
    Freedom to choose is paramount;
    not what is chosen.
    Sacred is Autonomy.”

    A path diverging our origin:
    Image of God--
    God is Love.
    We choose not love,

    We choose choice:
    Sacred is Autonomy!
    Autonomy you shall have
    Permissible? Yes

    Built Up? No

    I choose
    I want
    I

    Alone
    Am

    Dead

    1 Corinthians
    10:23-26]







    A Moment

    Pause
    Ponder
    Glory

    Be still
    Know God



    A better resurrection


    I have no wit, no words, no tears;
    My heart within me like a stone
    Is numb'd too much for hopes or fears;
    Look right, look left, I dwell alone;
    I lift mine eyes, but dimm'd with grief
    No everlasting hills I see;
    My life is in the falling leaf:
    O Jesus, quicken me.

    My life is like a faded leaf,
    My harvest dwindled to a husk:
    Truly my life is void and brief
    And tedious in the barren dusk;
    My life is like a frozen thing,
    No bud nor greenness can I see:
    Yet rise it shall—the sap of Spring;
    O Jesus, rise in me.

    My life is like a broken bowl,
    A broken bowl that cannot hold
    One drop of water for my soul
    Or cordial in the searching cold;
    Cast in the fire the perish'd thing;
    Melt and remould it, till it be
    A royal cup for Him, my King:
    O Jesus, drink of me.

    --Christina Rosseti (1830–94)
    God is good. God makes all things new. The Good Shepherd keeps and watches over you. May God bless us during this Passion Week and on this Easter Sunday.

How wonderful to turn to a vendor and see that Christ is put first. Keep going, he needs many of his children to testify of Him.
