Adoration, Not Autopsy

414drohoe2l

The major problem with contemporary scholars’ approach to Jesus’ resurrection is that they come to do the work of autopsy, not adoration. But Jesus Christ is the apex of all that is precious, the center of all that is glorious and delightful. He is the very point of existence. He is the Son of the living God, the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last who was and is and is to come.

“O come let us adore Him!”—not scrutinize, utilize, or analyze Him.

The personal claim the risen Jesus makes about Himself is that He is the God of the universe and that He deserves our awe, our reverence, our worship, our love, and our devotion.

— Jared C. Wilson, Unparalleled, 149.
