Friday of Jubilate Sunday (3rd Sunday after Easter - Easter 4) Week Reflections


Texts: 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 and Romans 8:18-25


Today we have two texts written by the Apostle Paul to two of the little congregations Corinth and Rome. Yesterday we had a text about Paul speaking in Athens, Greece and some of his words to the Congregation of Colossians.


Pauls words were regarded as conveying the essentials of Christian Faith and Doctrine by all in the Early Christian Church. They are thus listed among what is known as the Homologomena Books of the New Testament.


Because of Jesus “we regard no one according to the flesh” Paul writes the Believers in Corinth. “Therefore, if…

Thursday of Jubilate Sunday (3rd Sunday after Easter - Easter 4) Week Reflections


Texts: Acts 17:22-23 and Colossians 1:15-18


The Acts text has Paul speaking in the Athen’s Areopagus. He declares that he is there to Proclaim to them the God they Worship as “unkown”.


His message is that the Creation is by only the one they call the “unknown God” and by the end of his address to them he emphasizes the New Creation through the Resurrection The New Creation is assured by the raising of Jesus from the Dead (see vs 21).

Wednesday of Jubilate Sunday (3rd Sunday after Easter - Easter 4) Week Reflections


Texts: 1 John 4:7-14 and Isaiah 65:17-19, 23-25



John writes us that we aught “ to Love one another, for love is from God”


That of course is a response of Thankfulness for God including us in the New Creation that is accomplished solely because of Jesus.

“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only…

Tuesday of Jubilate Sunday (3rd Sunday after Easter - Easter 4) Week Reflections



Texts: Ephesians 4:25-32 and Job 42:1-10


In The Ephesians text the believer is instructed to “put away falsehood and speak truth with his neighbor” and to live a life that is based in God’s Word.


This is the thankful response to the Gospel that Jesus has purchased us and so we are to strive to “be ye kind one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you.”


A key passage in this text is about how the New Creation comes to us! We are not to grieve the Holy Spirit of God by living Contrary to God’s Wor…
