Resurrection Rendezvous

I recently went out with my son, Wesley, to Sonic to have some heart to heart discussions. He will soon realize that Sonic is the place where we go when we have to "get some things straight". Don't get me wrong, he wasn't really in trouble, but we just had to have some "fine tuning" and really, to be quite honest, a conversation that only a father and son could discuss...and a Caramel Milkshake helps it all go down better. It was one of the most awesome discussions I had with him. A discussion with Wesley is one of a kind...we can go from talking about the Cosmos and life on other planets to Sonic Ice Cream...in just one sip of a milkshake. Our conversations are kinda like a rodeo....just hold on! And even though some of it may wear you out, we both feel refreshed afterwards. Sonic is a rendezvous for us of sorts...a place that helps us come full circle. I have been meditating on a scripture for the past two weeks:

 Mark 14:27-28 in the Message
Jesus told them, "You're all going to feel that your world is falling apart and that it's my fault. There's a Scripture that says, I will strike the shepherd; The sheep will go helter-skelter. "But after I am raised up, I will go ahead of you, leading the way to Galilee."

 Slightly different, but Jesus had His own "Resurrection Rendezvous" point. The disciples are in the "Sinkhole"....read the last blog post to understand what I mean by "Sinkhole".  Now, it is not the Sinkhole of Jesus...but nevertheless, a sinkhole. They ran from His and into their own. Have you ever done that? Eyeing the situation, you think running away is better than running into what God has for us...and then blame Jesus for it all? I know I have...but Jesus has a plan...He always does. What I want to concentrate on is that Jesus had a meeting point after Resurrection! During the worst part of His life, his Sinkhole, He relays a rendezvous point for His boys. No matter what Sinkhole you are in right now, yours...His...it doesn't matter! He is leading the way to a place He wants us all to meet Him at...a Resurrection Rendezvous! Galilee is the place for the disciples...where is yours? Where is He leading you to? We will get into why he chose Galilee in the next post but I just believe Jesus has a Rendezvous for us all. A place to meet Him fresh again, real again, resurrected again! Isn't that what being "Born Again" is all about? Isn't that what Easter is all about?

 During our Sonic conversation, a soon and upcoming ninth grader says to me, "I want to do something really big...something to change the World for Jesus!" I liked that....now if we could just get those grades up!
