But we proclaim Christ crucified…
Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom,
and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
As I meditate on this Second Reading from the Third Sunday of Lent, I am encouraged to constantly fall back on the Lord, to renew my strength.
If God’s weakness is stronger than human strength, then we can only imagine, what God’s strength can do in the human realm.
Indeed the strength of God was made manifest at the death, and resurrection of Christ.
At the moment Christ died on the cross, Scripture tells us
51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53 After his resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many. – Matthew 27 : 51 – 53
The strength of God is also what manifested in the Resurrection of Jesus.
For only the power of God Himself made manifest in Christ, was able to raise Jesus’ lifeless body from the grave into His now transformed Body that lives forever, fully united with His Divinity as God.
Yes Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man – and this is the mystery of Christ we proclaim.
Christ incarnated, crucified, died, buried, resurrected, ascended, reigning at the right hand of The Father, Who would come again to judge the living and the dead.
Our God made manifest to us in the person of Christ Jesus is truly Omnipotent and the Eternal Wisdom.
Today as we acknowledge the Power and Wisdom of God, let us humble ourselves before Him and allow Him transform us in His Love. Amen.
All powerful God
All knowing God
Take absolute control of our lives
In our hearts may You reign
In our lives may You reign
In our families may You reign
In our parishes may You reign
Jesus, Lord reign forever more.
May You reign O Lord
May You reign Holy Spirit
May You reign Jesus
May You reign…
Always and Forever,
To The Lamb.
With all my love.
