This Easter Lets Speak the Truth
The last time I posted a blog, about all I had to say was that I was weighed down by sorrow.
Most of the things over which I was grieving are still around, but as I said then, I know that God is over all—and this week we are rejoicing over the antidote to all sorrow.
We can pull up a lot of theology words when we talk about Easter—atonement, substitution, propitiation, and so on.
All of them relate to some aspect of Jesus’s work on the cross, and behind each of them is a wealth of meaning.
Pages and pages in the theology textbooks address each one.
But here’s what I read this morning in a prayer blog I subscribe to. In John 8:21-26, the Jewish leaders are once again challenging Jesus, and here is what he said to them:
Jesus: From the beginning of My mission, I have been telling you who I am. 26 I have so much to say about you, so many judgments to render; but if you hear one thing, hear that the One who sent Me is true, and all the things I have heard from Him I speak into the world.
I’m not sure what translation this is from, but it’s very clear.
This Easter let’s speak the truth that we have heard from Jesus into the world—stand on the rooftops and shout it!
He’s coming again.
