The women who went to the tomb Easter morning were NOT looking for life. Even though Jesus had talked about resurrection more than once, there was nothing in the way they were wired to think or imagine that could have possibly prepared them to anticipate something so other-worldly. This side of the Empty Tomb and this far beyond the resurrection of Jesus, it’s a bit different for us when we hear the question the women are asked, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?” (Luke 24:5) But what would we say if the angels/men asked that question of us – RIGHT NOW – especially those of us who profess to believe, follow and “root” ourselves in a resurrected Jesus? Where do we look . . . WHERE HAVE WE BEEN looking for life?
Don't miss Journey Through the Bible following the service!
