Get Up and Get Going

 

 

Ulysses fought in the Trojan War.  He conceived of the wooden horse in which Greeks would hide.  When the Trojans would take the trophy into their city the Greeks would emerge and open the gates so their comrades could enter and conquer Troy.  When Ulysses headed home his ship sunk.  He stayed on an island in which the nymph Calypso offered him eternal youth.  But he fled to return to his family.  When he got home 108 suitors had taken over his palace and were striving for his wife’s hand.  He disguised himself as a beggar. They mocked him but he performed heroic acts and defeated them and claimed his wife and his kingdom.

Jesus is our hero.  He disguised himself as a lowly carpenter.  He endured ridicule but through the heroic acts of crucifying our sins and being raised from the dead he claimed his kingdom and his bride, the church.

We need to be like Jesus.  As we take up our crosses and live through his resurrection power we can get up from our beds of self pity and defeat and live heroically.  Sunday I’m preaching on “Get Up and Get Going” from John 20:1-18.  The resurrected Jesus got up from the tomb and challenged Mary Magdalene to get up from her grief and get going to tell the disciples that Jesus is alive.  Thus the world was changed forever!

There is a community Good Friday Service at Good Shepherd, 1615 Morse Ave. from 1:00 till 3:00.  Greg Horton and I will be speaking.  Then, there will be a Good Friday Service at our church at 6:00 with Sallyann leading us in a time of worship and reflection.  I’ll portray John in beard and costume in a monologue called, “Experience the Dark, Await the Light.”

Then, on Easter please come to Sunday School at 9:00 and worship at 10:30.  Help us serve the Risen Lord.  Satan will want you to stay in bed, but I urge you to get up and get going!

Happy Resurrection Day!

With love in Christ,
Jim Meek
