Good day FLC! Today’s Easter Essentials: From Resurrection to Pentecost continues today with this quote by Lesslie Newbigin. It is fashionable in this age to declare whether you are a glass half-full or half-empty kind of person. But Newbigin shows this is inept and incapable of penetrating the grand revelation of the Christian Faith. Jesus Christ is risen from the dead! This faith has everything to do with life, not simply some religious form of life (whatever that means!). Every area of our lives is touched by the One who suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, and buried and now is raised from the dead, seated at the right hand of the Father. Shift your thinking today about Easter Hope…it has nothing to do with optimism or pessimism. It has everything to do with who God is and what God has done in Christ! May the objectivity of the Christian revelation renew you today to live responsive to this Truth. Shalom.
