Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 5:7 NIV

“Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say.”

 

Woohoo! We did it! We won! He rose! It’s all over! Yes, Yes, Yes! Ok. That’s true. The day after Easter we can celebrate Jesus overcoming death and giving us a guarantee of the same for us. Everything the disciples went through for 3 years pointed to that post resurrection moment. The celebration is valid. But, yep there it is, the ‘but’. Never did Jesus say if we can just get to the resurrection we are done. We can quit and call it a win. After the resurrection we are now living by what Senik would call the ‘Infinite Game’. Our life focuses on the eternal. As true as it was when Jesus on the cross declared ‘it is finished’ something powerful had just begun. Those three words are actually translated from the Greek word tetelestai, an accounting term meaning paid in full. When Jesus rose on Easter He put the exclamation mark on that statement from Good Friday. However we are not saved to sit. Jesus rose and launched His kingdom. The followers, the 11, carried the message of our ‘debt paid in full’ into the world burdened with its eternal debt and sin. They began a work that today continues to shake the planet. Jesus spent three years planting His truth in the hearts of His followers then He sent His Spirit to invade their entire being as He mobilized them and sent them out. We are here today because it didn’t end with the empty tomb. It started there. Today live as though Jesus declares your debt paid, He does and it is. #BeTheEdge
