Changing the world

The phrase in the title of this post gets used a bit too much describing events that didn’t really do a lot of good.  But a couple thousand years ago, an event took place which did change the world, changed it for the better, and did so without pulling any of the levers the Secular Man finds so appealing.  Without resort to military power, economic power, political power, nor even intellectual power, the resurrection of Jesus Christ changed the world.  Humanity can never be the same again.

Many are the afflictions of the human race in a fallen world, and back of them all stands the one enemy of Death.  Suffering Job wondered aloud if the finality of death could be reversed.  (Job 14:14)  Christ’s emergence from the tomb gave the world a joyful answer to that question, and in so doing provided a hope that every other aspect of sin’s curse could be undone.  The lion shall lie down with the lamb, and because Jesus lives, the day will come when man will beat swords in to plowshares, spears into pruninghooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither will he learn war any more.

When Christ arose, he changed the world.  But the change isn’t all done yet until he has changed you and me and fitted us for the new world he is preparing.
