Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Easter 3 – Merely accepting the resurrection as historical fact is not the same as allowing the risen Jesus to shape our lives. The life that Jesus had led was life as God had meant it to be, and when God raised Jesus from the dead he was saying "Yes! This is my beloved son, and I am very, very pleased with him!". After his resurrection, Jesus instructed the disciples to continue the work of proclaiming the message of God's unrelenting mercy, compassion and justice – and when they did so their lives were transformed. We too, as followers of Jesus, are called to be bearers of the good news, in the ways we live and the choices we make. We are called to be a continuing Easter community.
Luke 24: 36b-48
