Resurrection, Again...

Resurrection is a frequent topic for discussion among those of us that try to see the bigger picture of the Judeo Christian worldview.  I mean, what could be a more appropriate and exciting thing to talk about - what with the Kingdom of God having already been inaugurated back there in the first century, and what with the promise from the Lord that he will return and one day bring that Kingdom to our planet fully.

But even with that great promise - the promise that makes the Judeo-Christian story the greatest story ever told - there are many times I've been left asking "What about today?".

So about today, I'm reminded of one of my favorite Psalms.  In it, David is dealing with the everyday dangers of being king of a fledgling nation.  He was, as he was often, concerned with the enemies of Israel.  He was concerned with his personal enemies.  And finally, he cried out to Yahweh to look at him and to lift him above his oppressors.

At the end, though, David expresses his faith in God in a most beautiful way.
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
So I think I'll follow David's example today.  I'm waiting to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living...
