Mark 16:9-11;
From Certainty to Openness


He is Risen
Christ is Risen Indeed!

As we seek God’s way, we move from the confidence of knowing how things are to the unsettling openness of realizing God’s ways are beyond what we can imagine. This Easter Sunday we gaze upon the wonder and miracle of Resurrection Sunday and we are still seeking God’s ways in our lives.  Resurrection as a way that God works is wonderfully surprising.  Where the disciples began in their journey with Jesus, they couldn’t have imagined it would end here.  What Jesus was doing, what God through Christ was up to, was, after all, impossible!
God’s ways are to make the impossible possible. 


When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it. 
~Mark 16:9-11

 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
~Isaiah 55:9 

Reflection Question:

1.  When you look beyond what you think you know, what do you see then?
