Don't Worry, Monday's Here!

Don't Worry, Monday's Here!

During the Easter season, I heard a seminary professor once say: "We live in an in-between time — between despair and hope — between the Resurrection of Jesus and the Return of Jesus - between the inauguration of the Kingdom of God and the final redemption of all things."

In other words, my professor wanted us to know that we live in the promise of redemption, but not yet in the fulfillment of it.

And I absolutely agree!

I see a world famished with sin, groaning in pain.

I've Got a Case of the Mondays

A close seminary friend used to tell me, quoting past church mystics and theologians to note the dreary and melodramatic reality of our world: "We live in an in-between time — between despair and hope — between the Resurrection of Jesus and the Return of Jesus - between the inauguration of the Kingdom of God and the final redemption of all things." In other words, we live in the promise of redemption, but not in the fulfillment of it.

Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Resurrection Day! My wife came across this video online a couple of days ago, and I want to share it with you. It's titled "#Falling Plates." My wife and I watched it together, and I am glad that we did! It moved both of us. May it move your heart, as well, to the truth, power, and awe of God's salvation and redemption for us through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Peace be with you!

QUESTION: Where has God picked up the pieces of your falling plates and put you back together?
