“‘Why do you seek the Living among the dead? He is not here. He has risen.'” Luke 24:5-6a
What a question. Why do I seek the living among the dead? Lord, help us to not waste time on dead and dying things. May we not find ourselves too distracted by lifeless, busy nothings that often feel so important or urgent or necessary. Help us to seek You - the Living One. You are not among the dead. Instead, you beckon us to Life.
May I, like Peter, rise and run to the empty tomb. May I, like Peter, kneel down and gaze into what Resurrection means for my broken soul. My I, like Peter, walk away marveling. Today, of all days, is a day to marvel.
