Resurrection of the Body!
April 21, 2015, 8:45 PM
We had fun on Sunday exploring one of the central tenets of Easter: Resurrection of the Body, complete with a Dixieland rendition of "When the Saints Come Marching In."  If you missed service unfortunately you won't be able to hear the sermon because my recording malfunctioned and was unable to be resurrected.  (Note to Don Moore - need to get our AV Team rolling :-)). But the good news is that you will be Resurrected!  The message of Easter is all about the Resurrection - how Jesus' Resurrection and defeat of death points towards our own resurrection of the body, and how  it is PersonalPerfect and Perpetual!
This reality has awesome implications for how we live our lives today. When we pray for healing we are asking for a foretaste of that perfection now!  When we care for our planet we are driving towards the New Creation Now!  When we heal our relationships we are sharing the very personal salvation we have received with the extended family that will live perpetually with Jesus, when "His Kingdom Comes, His will (is) done, on Earth as it is in Heaven."  
What part of your life needs resurrection this Easter season?  Is it physical or emotional healing; relational, it a hope or dream.  Whatever the need, as we move through Easter towards Pentecost, I pray that you receive a foretaste of the Resurrection of the Body in the form of as much healing, reconciliation, and living water welling up to eternal life as you can handle!   
In Jesus Name.  Amen!
"And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you."   Romans 8:11.  NIV
