Silent Witness – Inverness…

April 6, 2012

Good Friday…

From 11am to 1pm Christians from many churches around Inverness gathered together at a simple cross at the junction of High Street and Ingles Street.

We stood together in silence focusing on the cross while a soft rain fell.  This junction usually the hub of the pedestrian precinct became a place of quiet contemplation, taking time to reflect on the death of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Standing in the rain I could hear the hushed comments of adults and children passing by “What’s this about?… Who died?… And He’s alive now?… Is that true?… I don’t know!”

1 Corinthians 15

20 …Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.

21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. 22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. 23 But there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he comes back.

24 After that the end will come, when he will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. 25 For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. 26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is death27 For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under his authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under his authority,” that does not include God himself, who gave Christ his authority.) 28 Then, when all things are under his authority, the Son will put himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave his Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.

There is an order to the unfolding of the whole of creation… Christ will reign until all his enemies are humbled… and then the Son will put himself under God’s authority… utterly supreme over everything everywhere.

For Love.  For restored relationship. For His glory.

There were folks who left Inverness City Centre today with good questions in their hearts and minds… may they have ears to hear the voice of the Father calling to them.
