3 Questions Post Resurrection

What happens after Easter? We've had Ash Wednesday, 40 Days of Prayer, Palm Sunday, Seder, Tenebrae, and Easter Sunday, so now what? I guess we wait until Advent, right? What do we do for the next eight months?

Let's change the question and ask, "How do we live in light of the resurrection?" What does it look like to live in the freedom of conquered sin and death? Here are three questions to contemplate as we live in celebration of our emancipation.

What are you afraid of?

"So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture..." (Romans 8:31-35 The Message)

What is your plan for spiritual growth?

"For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil." (Hebrews 5:12-14)

Where is God working and how can you serve?

"Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, 'Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?' Then I said, 'Here am I. Send me!'” (Isaiah 6:8)
