Focusing on the Gospel During Resurrection
This week my facebook has been ablaze of folks on both sides of the marriage discussion. Lately I have really been convicted of my words. I may be the only Bible that some will ever read and so because of that, I am trying to speak the truth in love. I won’t stop posting or sharing Gods word or what is right and wrong in accordance with the Bible. My point is this, are we so focused on being right, we are losing sight of the gospel? Will you be focusing on the gospel during Resurrection?
Today is Maundy Thursday. For those who may not know what that is you can read about it here. I am not catholic but I like to spend this day reflecting on the last day Jesus was alive. The things He did and said. As we lead into Good Friday and on into Resurrection Day, I am a mix of emotions. Reading some of the post I have this year, I have not seen as many posts about the Resurrection. I have saw many arguments on the marriage debate though. As I was scrolling today though I can across an excellent blog post. It summed things up wonderfully.
Here is the article. Friends, while I do not want the definition of marriage changed, Biblically it never will be. We have to trust in God and his word. Don’t let this take you away from the gospel. Remember tomorrow. Tomorrow is the day they hung Jesus on the Cross. The day that he gave up his life for you, for me, for us all. Tomorrow is the day they lay Jesus in a tomb with guards. Sunday is Resurrection Day. Tomorrow is Friday but Sunday is coming….don’t forget that in the midst of political debates and proving who is right/wrong.
I will leave you with a few videos to focus you on Christ and the gospel.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. 1 Corinthians 15:3-8
I hope that everyone has a blessed Resurrection and takes time to reflect and give thanks.
