What Now?
This is one of those rare Aprils that present itself Post Resurrection. We
have already finished our Resurrection celebrations and are considering
just what may be ahead for us as individuals and as a congregation. Certainly there is much ahead as far as our church calendar is concerned, but
what about now? What do we do if all of our plans for the future are disrupted by events (family, religious, political, environmental, etc...)? Some
of us have already faced these types of crisis; all of us will. No matter how
much we purpose and plan there is always the unknown eventuality, the
unforeseen occurrence, the dreaded happening that we must give way to.
It’s the things that we do not want to experience, and, as a result we find
ourselves hopelessly unprepared for even when we have given our best
forethought to them.
Such was the case with the early disciples in the period after the resurrection of our Lord. Jesus had tried to prepare them for what they would face,
but they had other plans and did not want to think about any contingencies.
They must have thought what now? These men and women had plans,
dreams, visions that were now being preempted by the greater scheme of
God, in Christ! Without being aware, they were being taught what it truly
meant to have faith borne in their souls. Faith at its essence always encompasses the “what now” of the day which God has gifted us with.
So it was for them and so it is for everyone who has taken up the cross to
follow Jesus. Our faith in Him transverses the now of our hearts and
minds, and carries us toward an ever increasing reliance upon God. Our
trust in Him leads us to the mount of self-sacrifice, and, to where we find
our own talents, gifts and abilities insufficient in the light of the “what now
of today”. John the baptizer said it and we must make it our own, “He
must increase and I must decrease”.
It can never be just another April or otherwise named month, day, or, year
in Christ. For us there is always another now ahead and Jesus is there to
show us the way to transcend it.
There is no April fools in that faith!
In Christ’s love,
