Sunday Reflection (April 4, 2021)

Why would anyone crucify Jesus the Christ? Do not be deceived: Not everyone wants relationships healed and good things to happen to others. Many in power and privilege like the way things are with little thought for those without power and position. May we not overlook indifference, because by our indifference we thwart the doing of good and the healing of relationships that God intends.

The Good News is that we are empowered by the Holy Spirit in Christ’s Church to demonstrate the kindness and favor of God to the world (Acts 10:34-43). Christ’s Church fosters the healing of relationships, especially with those from whom we are estranged and disagree with. As a Christian and follower of Jesus Christ, you are empowered by the Holy Spirit to do good and bring healing to the world. Resurrection is about life, restoration, reconciliation, and healing: Embrace it!
