Calling hours and funerals can be a morbid experience. We’ve all attended ‘wakes’ of loved ones and friends; viewing the deceased in the casket and offering condolences. Wouldn’t it be a huge surprise if the deceased arose up out of the casket!
Peace, wealth, and prosperity… is this your dream? Is this what Jesus promises? While Jesus ultimately came to bring eternal peace, it seems like conflict and controversy followed him almost everywhere he went. Wealth was something he definitely lacked. Someone with prosperity doesn’t usually get charged in an illegal trial and then sentenced to death in the most tortuous and painful way available. And yet, this is the life of Christ, and the life he invites his disciples towards: it’s a life of cross-carrying because we live with a different type of victory plan.
