I have to start today by thanking Adam and Nichole for their part in supporting TLP. Not only have they given monetarily, but Nichole was the one who fixed one of our drives a couple days ago.
I also have to thank my wife. I was not feeling well on Thursday, so Johanna basically told me I needed to stay in bed Friday morning while she went out and made breakfast for the guys. So she and the Resident Assistances handled the morning, and I felt so much better when I finally started to crawl out of bed around 10.
But then I realized this episode was supposed to publish that morning at 12am. And I felt like a total failure.
But then I received this Facebook message from a friend:
“Hey Aaron! For some reason, I felt like this morning that you needed to hear some encouragement. So I just wanted to say that what you are doing is SO important. I am not a huge podcast listener, but when I do have the time and listen to yours, it's a blessing. I'm grateful for your work. I know it takes a lot of time, but it is worth it. Thank you for all you do.”
I then shard with her what a timely blessing she had been and how the Lord used her to lift my spirits and she replied, “God works in cool ways. You had just come to mind like 3 times in a row and I felt like that meant something. It's easy to feel like "what is the point?" I'm struggling trying to get my next book done by June. And I have regularly asked myself a similar question--"Does anyone care?" but obedience doesn't mean acting when we know the return. It just means acting based on our trust. I must repeat this daily. I hope you feel better soon. And something that has helped me tremendously is remembering that getting off schedule with producing content is OKAY. I'm hardly blogging at all right now because I just can't while writing a book. Take the pressure off. You'll do it when you're able.”
So I took her advice and published this episode as soon as I could. And I think we should all take her advice: “Obedience doesn't mean acting when we know the return. It just means acting based on our trust.”
Today we’re going to talk about a few more implications and applications concerning the Resurrection of Christ.
But, before we do that, please click on the “5 Ways to Support TLP" link in the description of this episode to learn more about who we are and how we desire to glorify God by equipping dads and moms all over the world to be the parents God called and created them to be . . . and, how you can be a part of that.
So, let’s learn the Truth, understand the Truth, and believe the Truth — which, of course, means that we actually live that Truth out in our daily lives and parenting.
If you didn’t join us last time, you really need to stop this episode and listen to that one first.
Last time we started studying I Corinthians 15. We saw the absolute importance of the Resurrection to our faith, but also to our daily lives.
I also mentioned last time that I would comment on the fact that some Christian families prefer not to celebrate Easter due to its worldly commercialism. I will comment on that, but I think I need to do it next time. I was looking at the amount of info today, and I want to respect your time.
Okay, so, today we start in verse 35 and learn about Paul’s third implication of the Resurrection. And don’t forget that these last two episodes have extremely robust free episode notes available at TruthLoveParent.com.
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
Now, I’ve found that too often we spend a lot of time discussing the Crucifixion at Easter and not as much time discussing the Resurrection, but the Crucifixion is important too, so on our next episode we’ll talk some confusing elements concerning the Crucifixion and why my family has stopped celebrating Good Friday.
My friends, the Resurrection is a huge deal that has a massive impact on your life and parenting. Easter should be a gigantic focus in our families.
So, to that end, I’ll see you next time.
