Why are you looking for the living among the social media posts, elected leaders, political parties, Hollywood heroes, corporations, capitalism, marxism, medicine, masks, anti-vaxers, the law, anarchy, self righteousness, delusion, dirty little secrets, good deeds, yourself, your job, your health, the vaccine, the dead. He is not here. Life is not here. Hope is not here.
He has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: “The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.” Then they remembered his words.
Have you forgotten them?
Have you wandered back into the graveyard to build hopes and dreams out of dead things, put lipstick on a pig, pray to a golden calf, brush off your good deeds, stare into the black grave of your past words and deeds? All you will find is nothing or a white washed tomb full of dead bones.
He is risen. Jesus stands in our graveyard alive. He says, “I am the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in me will never die.”
He is our righteousness. He is our Life. It is yours for free. Go in Peace. Remember His Words.
