To what end is this? (the Musings of a CB-er)

Posted on by anonymous

The clouds part, the sun shines bright, and it’s rays envelope the last of the toes of the Savior, Jesus, as he rises into the sky. The men who surround the hill stare up into the clearing sky, eyes wide and mouths dropped in awe. And they stood there. And they stared.

What are we to do after the glorious rising of our King? The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation of our faith, the foundation of Christianity. This is not about good teachings, about good philosophy, not even about being a good person, a functional member of society… This is about the fact that if there is no truth to the Resurrection, then our entire faith, everything we are, is meaningless.

But I am not here to talk about the Resurrection. I am here to ask you one question: To what end is this? Jesus is gone. He is to return. What now? WHAT NOW?

The drool falling in the creases of the disciples gaping mouths hadnt even dried yet when the angels arrived at the scene. “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

Its time to get to work, people! It’s time to work! This the beginning of the great coming of the Kingdom, the one that He is preparing for us. Shall we be caught standing idly by, watching the clouds? Lord! May we be a family, a community, a people of action- furthering the kingdom.
