God’s Will

Mark 9:1

And he said to them, “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power.”

The religious leaders of Jesus’ day wanted to kill Jesus.  They hoped that by doing this the movement that he started would fade away. But, in the verse above, Jesus is telling his followers that some of them will be alive to see the flourishing of what came to be known as Christianity.

A little more than thirty years after the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, Christianity had spread through most of the known world. His life, death and resurrection was the power and glory that fueled it all.

Some today say that Christianity is fading away.  But it is the same kingdom, the same power, the same glory that began it all and it will be this same power and same glory that ends it all.

And when it ends, it will be in God’s time and in God’s will.

God’s will be done.

May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
