Which way?

Hi all and good morning.

Having taken a call this morning from a Director this morning it soon became clear that so much can knock us off course at work and cause anxiety,hassle and worry

My Bible verse says this …..”and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses”. (Acts 3 v15)

The word “Prince” is translated from the Greek archegos, which is translated “author” or “captain” in the book of Hebrews. But here, Jesus is called “the archegos of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.” So here Jesus has the sense of being “originator,” someone who starts or begins something. An archegos is one who leads the way so that others may follow. 

 I guess I can use the illustration of a ship in trouble on a rock. Someone jumps overboard with a rope and swims ashore, securing the line somewhere on the shore so that others are able to grab onto the rope and come to safety. The one who did it originally is an archegos. He fulfilled the role of an archegos.

That is what Christ is. He is saving us from the jagged rock, from the loss of our hope of eternal life. That is His job. He is leading and guiding us to the safety of actually being in the Kingdom of God.

So the Director I was speaking too reminded me that actually I need to remind myself of the fact that Jesus not only many years ago lead me to the safety of salvation but leads me today to safety in every situation. All I need to do is follow Him – even at work today!.

Hope that makes sense !

Mark
