Resurrection (Reflections of Hope, 2 of 6)
In Wesley’s sermon #83 “On Patience”, he states:
“Whereas in that moment when we are justified freely by his grace, when we are accepted through the Beloved, we are born again, born from above, born of the Spirit. And there is as great a change wrought in our souls when we are born of the Spirit, as was wrought in our bodies when we are born of a woman. There is, in that hour, a general change from inward sinfulness, to inward holiness. The love of the creature is changed to the love of the Creator; the love of the world into the love of God.”
As we spend a few more days looking at hope, let us renew our minds by looking at it through new eyes. God does the transforming and is already at work! Let us look at the world and our call to love our neighbor through His eyes. Let us look at this photo and see hope arise through our brokenness.
