Here Comes the Son
Rev. Robin Volker
Easter is a time of reflection, renewal, and resurrection - a time to cast off the old, limiting beliefs that have kept us entombed and to seek a transformation of mind, a transfiguration of consciousness, and a transmutation of substance.
Jesus lived these ideas. He showed us how to change our lives by changing our thinking. He called to his disciples and said, “Follow me.” He went to the mountain and the wilderness to pray and experience a transfiguration in consciousness. He aligned with God and tapped into the great creative power of Spirit. And in miracle after miracle, including the great demonstration of resurrecting his body, he demonstrated the power of transmutation, the changing of physical substance.
Nothing was off limits for Jesus. He challenged the established religious and political practices of his time, he challenged physical laws by turning water to wine and healing the sick, he challenged his disciples to step up to leadership and action, and he challenged his followers to open their minds to receive unexpected good.
The power that was alive in Jesus during his ministry here on Earth is still alive and active today in the living Christ Presence. This Easter is a special opportunity for you to re-connect with this power and presence, making it real in your life today. Join us on Easter Sunday, in person or in prayer, as we celebrate the coming of the Son – the resurrecting of the Christ Presence in our lives.
“Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead.” [Matthew 28:5-7]
