Scripture: John 12: 12-26

 

 


I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:16-19

My prayer for you today is the same as the Apostle Paul's prayer for the believers in Ephesus two thousand years ago: That you may know the love of Christ, that you may be rooted and grounded in his love. Join us Sunday morning for worship as we come face-to-face with our Lord and his love.

Meeting Jesus for the First Time

  • New Creation

         Only the power that makes a world can make a Christian. - John Wesley, Explanatory Notes Upon the New Testament

         The gospels tell us that early on the first day of the week the women made their way to the tomb. They were going to say goodbye to their friend and master. They were going to prepare his body for a proper burial. Little did they know that it was not just the first day of a new week, but the first day of a whole new era. 

         Throughout the gospels, especially the Gospel of John, we hear the music of new creation playing. In John 1 we see a glimpse of the new creation that is coming: “In the beginning…”. This new creation begins to spring up in the lives of people touched by Christ. The deaf can hear, the blind can see, the lame can leap. But new creation itself truly begins on Resurrection Morning.

         On the first day of the week, the old order has been overturned and new life has begun. On the first day of the week, the old way of living is thrown out and a new way of living is ushered in. On the first day of the week, the broken, hurting, grieving, sin-sick, desperate people of God become the healed, redeemed, saved, holy ones of God. On the first day of the week, new creation begins to spring up in the lives of disciples and in the world.

         Paul says in his second letter to the church at Corinth: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17) Our new life in Christ is a sign of the new life he is bringing to our world. Let your life sing out this week the song that says the old has gone and the new has come.
