2000 Years…

April 24, 2011

2000 years… and the tomb remains inexorably empty

2000 years… and no scholar has refuted the impossible claims of his followers

2000 years… and no sage has surpassed the wisdom of his teaching

2000 years… and no tide of history has erased his footprints

2000 years… and no end yet to the spread of his fame

2000 years… and no match has been found to his ability to inspire love

2000 years… and his Spirit cannot be extinguished, but flares up around the globe

2000 years… and we are left with little else than this: that Jesus reveals the One who made the world, and one day all things will be restored in his name.

If this is true…

  then everything we give or risk for his kingdom will never be lost

  then in all suffering there can be hope

  then the world needs to see and to know that he is alive

  then even today doubting-yet-worshipping witnesses are called to his service

  then history, and even creation itself, will be gathered into his purposes

  then today marks the first day of new creation
