In many respects I find an unresurrected Jesus easier to accept. Easter makes him dangerous. Because of Easter I have to listen to his extravagant claims and can no longer pick and choose from his sayings. Moreover, Easter means he must be loose out there somewhere.
Wow, this makes it all real, doesn’t it? Because of the resurrection he is more than a wise man. Because of the resurrection I have to take him and his commands seriously. Because of the resurrection I have to look for him in others and in myself. Because of the resurrection I can believe his promises. Because of the resurrection I am free.
“Andie, do you love me? Andie, do you love me? Andie, do you love me?”
Feed my sheep…..
I can ‘Talk the Talk’, but because of the resurrection, I must ‘Walk the Walk’.
