self-reflection

Some questions were asked of Jesus followers in the days after His resurrection that I think we should still ask ourselves today. Screen Shot 2013-07-23 at 11.10.04 AM

1. Why do you look for the living among the dead (Luke 24:5)?

Hmm… I can think of some choices we Christians make that lead us to this same question!

2. What are you discussing together as you walk along (Luke 24:17)?

What is coming out of my mouth as I talk with others, tweet and post?

3. Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds (Luke 24:38)?

This question exposes our faith or lack thereof. Either scripture is true and Jesus is who He says He is, and we who believe in Him are who God says we are, OR it’s all false, and our faith has no value. So why do we fear, and why do we doubt?

4. Why do you stand here looking into the sky (Acts 1:11)?

It’s true, Jesus will return one day in the same manner he went to heaven, but until that time, we have work to do in advancing the Kingdom of God!
