Psalm 122 is a journey to and from a collective worship gathering with the people of God. The journey gives us 3 stages: Anticipation of the Collective Worship, Participation in It, and Transformation from it as we go back into the world.
The Resurrection of Jesus is the Climax...the Ultimate Triumph...of the Gospel Story. But it's not… the end. It's the first fruits of something in which we all will participate - THE FINAL RESURRECTION. We look at 3 points...3 moments...on a path that God has planned for the individual who responds to the resurrection of Jesus: 1) Jesus' Own Resurrection, 2) The Resurrection of My Soul in Baptism, 3) The Resurrection of My Body at Jesus' Return.
