Luke 24: But God Wins in The End!

Some times, yes, evil wins the day. . . . But let there be no question, God will win the war.  When all is said and done, God will vanquish all forces of evil and disorder and disease that stand against him.

Why do I believe that?  Where is the proof?  Is that only wishful thinking?

The women went to the tomb in the very early morning of the first day of the week, carrying the spices they had prepared.  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, and when they went in they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus.  As they were at a loss what to make of it all, suddenly two men in shining clothes stood beside them.  The women were terrified, and bowed their faces toward the ground.  But then men said to them, “Why look for the living with the dead?  He isn’t here — he been raised!” (24:1-6a)

The God who conquered sin, death, Satan, and evil that Sunday morning at the Garden Tomb is the same God we worship today.  No gangbanger, meth head, anti-government bomber, terrorist, deranged loner with a handgun, social injustice, prejudice, disease, depression, addiction, lack of love, selfishness or anything else will win the last day.  God wins.  Love wins.  New Creation wins.

That’s the Story, and I believe it.

What did you learn from this month’s reading of Luke?

    MAY ALL PEOPLE WHO ARE CHILDREN OF LIGHT BE RAISED OUT OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD INTO THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD TO COME . AMEN.

  2. “At the crack of dawn on Sunday . . . .” I am sure lots of other people have noticed it. Maybe I have even heard a sermon on it. But this is the first time I have really noticed that Jesus is already resurrected by the crack of dawn on the third day. It’s like God couldn’t stand to leave him in the grave any longer. He fulfilled the three-days-dead prophecy, barely, but then death is so antithetical to God that He rescued Jesus from the grave as soon as he could. I love that!
