Using the Matthew Gospel Lesson, Pastor Wes points out that in the Resurrection God is saying yes to the whole of Jesus' ministry and to a world without pain, suffering or death. Pastor tells us the best is yet to come.
Pastor Wes addresses the problem that we have all gotten bound up in "molt" (death) by getting enwrapped in our own religous cocoons of rules or seperation. Just as Jesus ordered Lazarus to come out of his death stage, Jesus is calling on us to come out of our graves.
Pastor Wes points out how we naturally want to keep everything in a box that we can control or at least have explanations about. However, there are times when we can't control everything, and there is no easy explanation. Pastor Wes points out in those times we simply have to open our eyes to see Jesus, the Good Shepherd leading us.
In telling to story of the Samaratin woman, Pastor Wes notes how in her encounter with Jesus she becomes a container overflowing with living water which she shares with her townsfolk. Pastor Wes encourages us to also be containers overflowing with living water.
