More Than a Message

I posted at Out of the Ordinary this morning:

[Jesus’s] resurrection is like a giant billboard proclaiming that he is God’s powerful reigning Son (Romans 1:3-4) who has the authority to judge everyone (Acts 17:30-31). Christ’s resurrection is a loud pronouncement that he is Lord of all.

But to those who believe in him, Jesus’s resurrection is more than a message about who he is. Because believers are united to Christ, they experience resurrection, too.

Read all of Experiencing the Resurrection.


Thankful Thursday

A short list, quickly:

  • I’m thankful for the promise of warmer temps soon.
  • I’m thankful for bright sun shining through the livingroom windows as I write.
  • I’m thankful for the place I live. I might complain about the cold weather, but it’s still my favorite place in the world.
  • I’m thankful for God’s help to finish the tasks on my to-do list today.
  • I’m thankful for a full life at present. 
  • I’m thankful for opportunities to serve.
  • I’m thankful for the resurrection of Jesus and the hope it brings for life now and life to come.

What are you thankful for?
