Resurrection People

I shared this writing from NT Wright in my sermon yesterday. A great focus point to start Holy Week.

“The ultimate future hope remains a surprise, partly because we don’t know when it will arrive and partly because at present we have only images and metaphors for it, leaving us to guess that the reality will be far greater … Our task in the present is to live as resurrection people in between Easter and the final day, with our Christian life, corporate and individual, in both worship and mission, as a sign of the first and a foretaste of the second.” – Wright, N. T.. Surprised by Hope (p. 29-30). HarperCollins.
