Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - Luke 20:27-38

Read 167 Times

Luke 20:27-38

A common Tactic in an argument is to make fun of the position of another. Then one does not have to take seriously the view being expressed. This is what the Sadduccees were doing with the trick question they put to Jesus. Have you ever found yourself doing this? Have you experienced others doing it with you? What were the effects of such an attitude? Did it build up or damage a relationship?

Jesus used the phase "Children of the resurrection" to describe his followers because we believe in something that cannot be proven. Life can sometimes present us with that kind of a challenge - an invitation to believe in things we cannot prove: another person, a cause, the value of a course of action, etc. What has been your experience of believing and acting on this kind of faith?

At the heart of our Christian faith is belief that death is not the end. We believe that the relationship we have with God, and that starts in this life, survives death, and continues after death. We call this resurrection. In this month of November, we recall those we have loved and have died. How has belief in the resurrection helped you in thinking about those you have loved and who are no longer with you?
