Resurrection

light under the doorMore often than not, when someone asks the question, “What difference will it make?” there’s a usually resignation in the voice, the question itself being more rhetorical, more of a statement of fact than a question. But because the resurrection of Jesus changes everything about the nature of our relationship with death, it has the potential to change everything about the nature of our relationship to life and specifically, how we live our lives. At that point the question ceases to be “What difference will it make?” and becomes a very different question altogether: “How will it make a difference in our lives?”

And as the question changes, so do we.

So we ask the question: “How will the resurrection make a difference in our lives?”

Parents, “How will the resurrection make a difference in our parenting?”

Friends and neighbors, husbands, wives and lovers, how will the resurrection make a difference in our relationships, marriages, friendships? How will the resurrection make a difference in our sandbox partnerships, in our business partnerships?

How will the resurrection make a difference in the way we make decisions, how we treat people who serve us coffee, how we interact with other motorists? How will the resurrection make a difference in the way we conduct ourselves in public, in private?

How will the resurrection make a difference in the way we view others who differ in perspective from us; those of different denominations, other faith expressions.

How will the resurrection make a difference in the way we view people of other races, nations and religions?

How will the resurrection make a difference in your life?
