The Surprising God

We live in absolutely incredible times! Think of what we can do today. We can see what is inside our refrigerators while we are in the grocery store. We can turn on a cooking pot full of food sitting on our kitchen sink while we are still at work. We can start our car and cool it down while we are in the house getting ready to leave. Pretty impressive. Technology has allowed us to control our lives in ways people never imagined years ago.

We’re used to getting things the way we think they should be. But then God comes along and refuses to play by our rules. What we think he should do is often very different from what he does, and that frustrates us. While we enjoy a small, pleasant surprise every now and then, we do not appreciate the surprising God who regularly insists on doing things in ways which totally catch us off guard.

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are God’s two greatest surprises. Even today, it makes one wonder how God works. This Sunday we’re going to go to the tomb with Mary Magdalene, the first person to witness Jesus’ return to life. That surprise changed her life and it can change yours too!
