Perspective

February 15, 2018

Exodus 37:1-38:31

Matthew 28:1-20

Psalm 34:11-12

Proverbs 9:9-10

 

When you are sitting in the break room for a brief 20 minutes away from the busy Valentine's day cupcake chaos and you read: Jesus has defeated death. 

 

If that's not some perspective, what is? 

 

Everyone thought Jesus was coming to release the Jews from their enemy: the Romans. No...He came to free them from the enemy they didn't know could be defeated: death itself. 

 

And then He commissions us to tell everyone. He says to go and make disciples. But not before mentioning that He has all authority in heaven and on earth. 

 

ALL authority. 

 

He trumps everything. 

 

If that's not some perspective, what is?

 

THIS
IS
THE
MOST
IMPORTANT
THING
EVER. 

 

This is what defines you and me today, every day, every moment. Jesus defeated death and so yes, it matters in the break room, yes, it matters in the craft store, yes, it matters in the Chick-fil-a drive thru, yes, it matters now, here, there, then, because He has all the authority. All of it! He has authority over death. 

 

I know I could maybe live more aware of all of this...I don't know how well I'm doing on the Great Commission, frankly. So I pray that God would keep giving me perspective. Whether that's while I'm driving around worried about being late and suddenly looking up and realizing how big and beautiful God's masterpiece is in the sky. Or if it's literally reading the Great Commission on my work break to remind me why I'm even there in the first place. God, continue to give me perspective. You are all that matters, and You matter
