The Surprise to End All Surprises – Haggai 2:6-9, Matt 28:1-10

Easter is the most important cornerstone of the Christian faith. Without the resurrection, Jesus’ death on the cross would just be a good person dying a martyr’s death. Jesus would have been a false and failed Messiah. But when God the Father raised Jesus from the dead, everything that Jesus taught was vindicated. Jesus was authenticated as the Son of God. Nothing can be more important in our faith, the apostle Paul in 1 Cor 15 said, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”

Wisdom of God vs. Wisdom of Men - 1 Cor 1:18-31

We enter into the most beautiful and the holiest time of our Christian faith. It is the drama of our salvation – the passion (suffering) of our Lord Jesus Christ, his death on the cross, and the power of His resurrection. Captured in this drama is what the apostle Paul dared to call, “the foolishness of God”, displayed on the cross which is wiser than human wisdom. (1 Cor 1:25)

 

There is, without a doubt,

a kind of foolishness to the message of the cross. That the God who created all things would subject Himself to the anger, hatred, and cruelty of the ones whom He created, suffer, and die by their hands. But in that one “foolish” act, God transformed it into the event by which the law of justice was satisfied and provided salvation to those who believe. This transcends human logic, wisdom, and reasoning “but to those who believe and are being saved, it is the power of God.” (1 Cor 1:18)

Proverbs – On Facing Our Anger Wisely from Prov 12:16, 14:29, 15:1, 15:18, 20:5

The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. (Prov 20:5)

 

 

Anger is something that we all experience; it is part of our human nature. Proverbs offer us wisdom on how we can handle it wisely.

 

Goodness of Anger. There are positive aspects of this emotion. In Eph 4:26, the experience of anger is assumed; it is how we deal with it that can lead us to sin. In Exo 34:6-7, God revealed Himself to Moses as a God who is ‘slow to anger’, implying that God Himself does get angry. Therefore, the Christian ideal is not no anger, but it is slow to anger and constructively dealing with it.
