First-second grade classroom在过去的几个星期, 二零一八年十月十四日 证道经文:马可福音10’ 上帝的义如何显明? “二零一八年十月二十八日 宗教改革主日 证道经文…” (Luke 24:4 Jesus turned water into wine), “罗马书3?” (Luke 24: 17, what Jesus says as he joins two men walking along th卢克ad to Emmaus), 和 “此外, some of our women amazed us…” (Luke 24:22, referring to the women telling about how they went to the tomb and Jesusbody wasn’t there). We read the stories and move paper figures on our storytelling background to reenact what happened, and imagine feeling just the same experiencing this: We gasp that the huge stone has been moved. We feel confused when we don’t find Jesusbody. We feel surprised and scared at seeing people (天使) in clothes that gleam like lightening standing next to us.

We realize in seeing this through the people’s eyes, as much as this story is about Jesus, the story is also about us, God’s children in all points in time. Jesus came not to shock and amaze us with a death defying trick, but to help us know that we are loved and God understands the burden of feeling separated from Him. 耶稣’ return showed us that we are not apart from God, not just because God can make it so, but because God wants it so.

In the coming weeks, we move into Acts and watch the disciples move into action to tell people about Jesus.
