As we are in the season known as Eastertide in the church’s calendar, which continues through to Pentecost, we are in a time of rejoicing and living out the great hope that we have. This joy and hope is based on the fact of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, and having conquered death He has given us life eternal, and life in abundance.
Life in abundance means that we have life that we enjoy, NOW, and that we share with others in our chance, and even planned, encounters with people AND with God’s creation. I challenge you to go through the next weeks, to Pentecost, looking for the positive in EVERYTHING, looking for some reason to delight in every situation.
On Wednesday I challenged those who attended the mid-week services to spend the next few weeks blessing rather than condemning. I extend this challenge to all the St. Thomas’ family, in conjunction with the above challenge to delight in everything. So we have our work cut out for us as we enjoy the life Jesus has given us, and share this joy in the form of blessings that we give or speak over people, animals, plants, in fact, over all of God’s creation.
Have an awesome God week!
