“As Easter approaches, let’s stir up our thankfulness and joy and admiration and amazement at what the resurrection of Jesus means for us. The curse of our fallen nature is that what once thrilled us becomes ordinary. The reality hasn’t changed. We have changed.
This is why the Bible exists. Peter says of his two letters that they are written to stir up’ or ‘arouse’ by means of ‘reminder.’
So let’s stir up our sincere minds by way of reminder.”
