I’ve been struck with the idea this morning that for all our natural solutions to life’s problems, most of which are valid and have genuine motives and wide-reaching implications, they still fall short of the ultimate answer, which is supernatural.
“People don’t need a change of mind, they need a resurrection in their spirit.”
-Pierre du Plessis
That resurrection, however, doesn’t seem to come in times of joy, happiness, or light. That resurrection tends to come in the midst of darkness. Something has to be established as dead in order for it to be brought into a status of life.
“Great faith is what we say when we’re in the midst of darkness, not what we say we’re in light.”
Jesus is risen indeed. He brings light into deepest darkness. And that’s why I can praise him so easily. It’s so supernatural, it becomes natural.
