The idea of resurrection has been downplayed in our current materialistic mindset. What good is a comfortable life if we have a greater calling than to prove the goodness of God in this life?
Is God still good when a Christian believer is found murdered? Is God still good when a Christian family loses their home and has to move to an unsafe neighborhood?
If our calling is to show the goodness of God through our salary, cars, and homes then the “sin” if being “lower class” should be preached on and shown for what it is. But, if our purpose is greater in that it is to illustrate the amazing redemption of a fallen and sin cursed world then the resurrection of our broken bodies is our daily hope and ongoing message.
Hope that doesn’t change our perspective and social activism is no more hope than sight is without vision.
The message to our communities online should produce a vision of The Blessed Hope of our redemption: physically as well as spiritually. Share your community efforts not just your events for the community. What effects have you seen through the past food drives? Provide some images that illustrate Gods plan of redemption for us now in light if the resurrection that is to come.
