Something is awry—we feel disconnected. What we hope will bring life brings only limited amounts. We connect with a career and find meaning in family, yet long for something more. First a job, then a promotion. A wedding day, then a nursery…kids…grandkids. Around and around—is there anything else?
Jesus steps forth with a reconnection invitation in Ephesians 2:5, that though we be dead in our transgression and sins, and separated from the life of God, whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. Reborn! He breathes life into flat-lined lives. Others offer life, but no one offers to do what Jesus does—to reconnect us to—life!
1 Peter 1:3-4 says, “Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life. . .everything to live for, including a future in heaven.” And the future starts right now!
