I can’t help thinking about change on this Inauguration Day. The Greek New Testament has two words for life. One (bios) means “mere biological existence”; the other (zoe) means “life in all it’s fullness.”
What we are being offered by Christ, as far as change goes, is fullness of life, which not even death itself can destroy. We are not being offered an endless extension of our biological existence but rather a transformation of that existence. Let’s rejoice in the change offered by Our Lord!
