Easter and The Voice in Our Head

I’ve always heard it said, ‘The way you speak to your children is the voice they’ll hear in their heads when they grow up.’

I can see it in me and our own children, and knowing this makes me pause, because I could have done a whole lot better.

But I can also see it in people following God, and I can hear the echo of their parent’s voices ringing in their ears. Can you hear it?

You can change that voice.

We die to that old worn out recording, to breathe in the song of the morning anew every single day.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his tender mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.

Easter is a wonderful time for new beginnings.

For the first time in human history, Jesus became our way out.

…How do we know the way? Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

It is in Christ and Christ alone is our life in God.

His love broke death and the grave in two. Jesus innocent murder on the cross ripped the temple curtain from top to bottom. His perfect, sinless blood, poured out became for us our very life, as our life is in the blood.

The stone covering the grave of our old life is rolling away. Can you hear it?

How God transforms us as we receive Jesus into our lives is the greatest mystery of all time and eternity. The weakness of God, the foolishness of the cross confounds the wise, disarms the strong, and explodes our linear logic.

That we enter in and partake of this moment ‘in remembrance’…we are there with Jesus at his last seder supper, every time we celebrate the Lord’s Supper.

This mystery comes into play at the core of our being, ignited by our faith in God. To ‘remember’ is to suspend time and walk into the eternal moment where heaven meets earth and time slips into eternity.

But for us, the greatest part ois that we get to start all over again, brand new, in Jesus our Lord. Through the transforming gate of forgiveness, we begin again. It starts as a spark within us that grows in the garden of our hearts. That eternal, immortal, invisible, immutable, and indivisible life of Jesus Christ. It is Christ in us and us in Christ, and Christ within us as his body. The greatest mystery of time and eternity is met within us and we have barely begun to fathom its life, meaning, and scope.

That God’s love came down through Jesus for the whole world. Now our way out of this endless suffering and death is to abide, much like grapes on a grapevine we grow.

Every moment we choose to abide, we taste the eternal life as it flows through our spirit, and grows in our hearts.

Forgiveness is our access through Jesus our Lord, our Master, Teacher, Companion, Friend, our Brother, and Christ…who makes a way where there is no way, that we might walk in it…the way of the spirit in our hearts.

A new way to hear, and to see, and to live in awe and wonder.

Can you hear it?
