“Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen.” Luke 24:5
Everything has changed because of the resurrection if we only look in the right place. If we live looking at what is spiritually dead and listen to the pessimism of those who can only see what man is doing, we will easily give in to discouragement and despair. But if we remember that He is alive, that God, not man has the final say, and that even that which appears dead can come back to life; we will never cease to have hope.
“Because He lives,” the song goes, “I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future. Life is worth the living, just because He lives.”
We often live and work among those who can only see this world. May God help us, as we seek the living One, to bring a little of heaven to earth each day.
