Adam’s Weekly Devotional – April 5-11, 2018

From Adam…

Last week was Holy Week.  The week we watch the joyful shouts of Hosanna mutate into the hateful cries of Crucify!  Last week, like this life, is a paradoxical alchemy of celebration and mourning. We remember the way we uniquely encounter God’s yes to us in Jesus Christ. And we reflect upon our no to God as we put the Son on the cross. The good news of Holy Week is that God says yes to us even though we say no to God. In what ways have you been saying no to God’s love in your life? In what ways have you been saying no to God’s love of others?  And how have you killed hope, love, and grace in yourself, in your relationships, and in your community? Maybe you haven’t killed those things. Perhaps you’ve just stood idly by as hope, love, and grace suffocate nearby while skepticism , resentment, and self-pity take their place. Grateful that Easter has come.  God knows we need it. God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.
