Well maybe not this afternoon, but certainly tomorrow. Interesting that this post is the one queued up and ready to go right before Easter. Christ’s followers felt lost without him. Their beloved teacher and brother had just died, hung upon the cross like a common criminal. Imagine what they must have been feeling?
But they just didn’t get it. Christ was coming back and he was coming back soon.
We are Christ’s Easter people. How does this effect our lives?
We are free from the legalism that had overtaken so much of the people’s energy and lives. Yes, we will make mistakes. Yes, we will sin. We are, after all, human. But we don’t have to buy our way back into the temple. There is no one waiting between us and God with their hand held out waiting for the coin needed to purify us.
No one is standing between us and God. There is no longer a high priest. We can approach God directly. We can speak to Him and listen for his word.
We are his and he is ours and he is there for us all. We just need to pray and to listen.
Have a Blessed Easter everyone!
