Resurrection Check up: symptoms of death and symptoms of life?
This is a series on the spiritual signs of freedom and life versus the worldly signs of slavery to death/sin. I began with fear of dying, then individualism, autonomy and today it is minimalistic and entitlement members.
I am wondering if we have really believed in our incorporation into the Body of Christ, the Church? Too many of us are interested in the perks of membership (what's the minimum I must do to get the desired benefit?) Is my incorporation in faith putting me into a dynamic relationship with God and Church/others? That is the "perk" that resurrected life offers us.
So, are there any signs in your life of the blessing of incorporation/relationship to others? Or are there signs of the stingy approach to life which is seeking the least investment to obtain the desire benefit? That is a symptom of death. Minimalists concerned only about self-centered entitlements.
