“But the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body.” Mark 16:6, NLT
He isn’t here! The women went to the tomb looking for Jesus. They met an angel instead. The angel said, don’t be alarmed, Jesus is not here, He has risen from the dead. See where his body was laid. Oftentimes, we look back for answers, hope, a sign or the word only to find emptiness. The tombs are for the dead, He is not dead! He is risen! Today, God asks this question: why seek the living among the dead? We serve a Living Savior! The Word is Life! If we really believe He rose, why are we running to dead places, dead relationships, dead people, dead connections . . . for Life? The word Lives, Christ lives that we might Live!! The thief comes to kill, Christ came that we Live!! He is our hope of glory. God wants us to hold fast to His promises, trusting in His word and Live! He died that we might Live!!!
