He Lives to Rule All Things for His Church is a great Ascension theme. It doesn’t talk about how he physically ascended into heaven or how he will return in judgment on the Last Day, but it’s still a good Ascension Sunday theme. You see Ascension is the final of the big three festivals of the Christian church.
You are living stone built into God’s house, the church! All of you fit perfectly. That’s no by chance; it’s by design. Don’t be mistaken! Just because you’re a living stone in the wall doesn’t mean you get to sit there and do nothing. You have spiritual acts of worship to do! This is your daily life.
He Lives to Be My Good Shepherd in times of pain. I know that’s not necessarily where you wanted to go, necessarily, on this Good Shepherd Sunday, but Peter takes us down the path of pain.
He lives to bring me peace! That is the cry of the Christian on this Doubting Thomas Sunday. The second Sunday of the Easter season is a redo of everything that happened the week before. This Sunday is all about peace.
God bless America! We utter this blessing every time around this year. Our nation celebrates its independence in just a few days. What does our God have to say about our nation? How are we to act? Does it matter what’s in the constitution? How can we treat our elected leaders if we don’t like them? Check out what God has to say about America.
