Living Spiritual Rhythms–March 25

The living Messiah has inaugurated redemption; something so new and dramatic burst on the scene through his life, death, and resurrection that we can hardly imagine what it fully entails. Resurrection though does remind us of how to be and do in hope that the planetary mess we face will be resolved. One of the striking features of this is embodied in the Messianic life. God in Christ, through the power of the Spirit, explosively constrains the present and creatively directs it into the future. We are, as Christ’s followers therefore, not restricted to the status quo of the cycle of the same, but engaged in and by a transformation of grace that leads us towards our destiny of imaging the Crucified and Risen One in this life and the next.
