What does resurrection now look like? How do we experience it? Paul in Romans 6 suggests it is a matter of giving ourselves over to God, being as Gerald May puts it - willing, experiencing the presence of the risen Jesus in our hearts, and being lifted up that presence into a new way of living and loving.
There are many passages in the Bible that gives us clues about what this might look like. Be light! Be salt. Take care of the "least of these." The other day I ran across these thought provoking words. "Just look to see whose budgets are being cut these days, the old, the crazies, the children in Head Start. . that is where Jesus will be. . and that is where we should be." Resurrection now looks like us, being with the old, the vulnerable - living out our faith, making a difference.
If the resurrection is real, we need a new lifestyle. Well I can't speak for you. If the resurrection is real I need a new lifestyle. One that takes me new places, to new people, with a new focus and new priorities in my head and heart. Perhaps I need to walk through life with that old and often misused phrase in my head... "What would Jesus do?" Not pick up an AK-47 - that much I am sure of. But what would that resurrected Lord do? What should I do, if I have died with Christ and am raised with Christ, NOW.
