This week we celebrate with Christians everywhere the God's amazing love in sending His Son, Jesus to die and to rise again from the dead. In response to that we Christians can live the resurrection life; a life of serving the Lord and sharing God's love and grace with all around us. Paul talks in Romans of this life: "This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance!” Romans 8: 15, 16 (the Message)
I like the way that Paul describes the life of a Christian as an adventure; a life in which God's spirit guides and takes us to places and people with whom He wants us to share His love and peace. The students, teachers and community of Woodstock Christian School are part of this venture; God challenges us to live resurrection in our classrooms, our studies and in our interpersonal relationships. May we continue to let his Spirit guide us as we look forward to walking with Jesus each day and sharing in His "unbelievable inheritance”.
