To the victor go the spoils.

In light of this Resurrection Sunday, I commend the following piece by Peter J. Leithart: "It Really Happened." (HT Ron)

Here's a portion to pique your interest:
"If it really happened, then we've got a load of work, because not everyone has heard the news that God has conquered death. Jesus is King and Lord, and He sends us out to announce that He rules. He establishes the church to be the first form and bearer of His kingdom. He intends to overcome all evil and sin, all injustice and wickedness, and calls us in the power of His resurrection to share in His war against all that damages His good creation."

To really believe that Jesus rose from the dead ought to change all of us, as it did the Apostles. Having met with Him extensively after His resurrection, and subsequently empowered by the Spirit, they were no longer the slow-to-understand, at times incompetent band they once were. But now, convinced that their living Savior had proven the credibility of His teachings and identity, they were ready to give their lives for Him, serving tirelessly for as long as God should give them breath. We differ from them in that we have not seen Him with our natural eyes, but as Jesus said, "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe." The impact of the resurrection, upon us, however, should be no less potent.

Stumbled upon your blog as the result of a search for Semper Reformanda. Fellow Christian, reformer, professor, weirdness, Cowboys fan, Lakers fan, movie/quote fan -- i.e., a little scary. Good to make your acquaintance.
