Andy Moore takes us behind the locked doors of the upper room where a group is self-isolating against the outside world. Turning upside down the philosophy of Albert Camus’ The Plague, Andy invites us to create an entirely different frame of reference.
And many of us can relate to this as we look at the world today with so many questions, and so much skepticism about where God can possibly be in our experiences. But Jesus comes, just like He promised. And He says, “Peace be with you!”
Then something surprising, “As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” In other words, there is a hurting world out there, and I want you to follow me in love for it. So the disciples are faced with a huge question, “do they trust Jesus?”
God has not stayed in heaven or sat in silence. He has come in the person of Jesus Christ to reveal most clearly who He is. At the cross, He identified with the fullest depths of human suffering and in His resurrection Jesus fundamentally and forever changed the reality we live in.
Make it personal:
How does this global pandemic tempt you to feel hopeless? To feel that we are set-up for “never ending defeat”?
What difference does it make to your decisions - today - that God’s kingdom is an everlasting kingdom?
