On that first Easter Sunday, the women who came to the tomb came with the same normal expectations when we visited a graveside. The cemetery is where we go to reconnect to the last physical connection that we had with loved ones and friends that are buried there.
He Has Risen
Can we even imagine showing up at the grave of a loved one and finding it open and the casket empty!
We would be much like the women that morning in shock and disbelief. In the challenges of our day-to-day lives, we often look for answers in our own strength or the strength of others. We look where we most expect to find the help we need, often ignoring the purpose that God may have for us.
Take the Living Christ With Us
As we close Holy Week with the resurrection of Jesus, may we take the living Christ with us in our day-to-day lives. On this side of the cross, we have the clarity of God’s plan for our salvation through Jesus’ death and resurrection. May we benefit from knowing that the tomb, the cross, the upper room, the temple, and the manger are all EMPTY because HE is ALIVE.
HE HAS RISEN!
5 The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? 6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead!Luke 24:5-6 NLT
