Reflection of the week
By Linda Sutton
Posted in Faith
I have a list of things I intend to do after Easter. After a short holiday break, it is good to get back into a familiar routine.
In the wake of the dramatic events told of in the Easter story, the apostle Peter intended to go fishing (John 21:3-4). The act of fishing would be familiar and reassuring. He little knew that once Christ had risen, nothing would ever be the same again. Peter’s life, and the lives of so many others, would be changed forever.
Now I am challenged by this question: After Easter, will it be ‘business as usual’ for me, or will I allow the Living Lord to transform my life with his powerful presence?
Crucified and Risen Lord, be with me as I ring in the changes that are needed to live as one who is saved by your grace and transformed by you Spirit. Amen.
