What a blessed morning.
My heart is full.
Earth exploded on this morning so many years ago, as Jesus burst forth from the tomb.
The cross was not the end all.
A tomb wouldn't hold Him back...
...and death could not contain Him.
It takes my breath away each time.
Reading, I enter into the scene, picture myself there.
Just one of the grief stricken, heart broken women coming to anoint my Lord.
I was one of those "who'd been forgiven much"...and, oh, how I loved Him!
These WORDS, this morning, stop me in my tracks.
Open my eyes.
Hold my tongue.
Why do you seek the LIVING among the DEAD?
Because HE DIED!
Why else would I be at a grave?
But, put to rest, any question of doubt.
Jesus is ALIVE!
Moreover, this is also true:
Death will not claim me.
I am more than a conqueror, because of Christ Jesus, my Lord!
When all is said and done, do not seek the living among the dead - for I will not be there!
Thanks be to Jesus Christ!
