Dead or Alive
Choices. Choices. Choices. Already this morning we've made a few hundred of them, not least of which was 'get out of bed' or 'hit snooze.' Hundreds more will confront us before March runs its course tonight at midnight. Jesus' crucifixion/resurrection presents a choice that is stunning; a kind of 'get-out-of-death-and-into-life' (or 'stay dead') offer. Accepting it introduces us to life in a kingdom whose very atmosphere is one of unparalleled provision, peace, and promise.
