Is It Really Finished?

We all know that Jesus packed a lot of important meetings into his schedule before ascending into heaven after the event we now call Easter.  Many stories took place in that time that have implications and meaning for us including the doubts of Thomas and the questioning of Peter.  Until Thomas could place his own hands into Jesus's hands and feel the nail scars, he would not accept that Jesus had risen from the dead.  The camp fire scenes where Jesus questions Peter about whether Peter really loves him places us in Peter's shoes and challenges us in the same way.  And of course, the command to go into all the world to make disciples of all nations and to baptize them in the name of the Lord is ever a challenge for us to press on.  This last entreaty alone says it is NOT finished, and we are to keep it going with our witness and encouragement in the spread of the gospel message.

In today's MMM though, I want to focus on an Old Testament passage from Leviticus 10:8-10 where God is challenging Aaron to teach the people and their descendants what is holy.  This is not a mission trip to a far away place to tell someone you've never met about the Lord, it is a challenge to make sure that those in your own family and in your circle of influence know about the the things of God.  How much time have you spent in dialogue with your family members in the last few weeks on the things of God?  Compare that with the time spent talking about the winners and losers on reality TV; the Masters; or the NCAA tournament.  When is the last time you shared how much it means to you that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave to pay the price for your sins and then show you that death is not the last chapter in your life?


"You are to distinguish between what is holy and what is ordinary, what is ceremonially unclean and what is clean.  And you must teach the Isrealites all the laws that the Lord has given through Moses."  (Lev. 10:10-11 from the New Living Translation)


This week, pray for an opportunity to share something from your heart to one of your closest family members!   God bless you all and Happy Easter!   He is Risen!
