“Why do you seek the living among the dead?” (Luke 24:5).

The pronouncement of the two angels at the empty tomb is the challenge to this generation. We need answers. This is a desperate time for so many in searching for real answers. People are tired of pacifying words that merely delay the imminent failures that they have grown so accustomed to. Some are wishfully thinking that some semblance of life may yet remain among the ruins ofyesterday’s shattered dreams. They have driven their stakes andset up their tents in graveyards rather than in the place where new life is blossoming. Jesus was once there but only for a little while. He was carried there because no life was within His body. Now it is as empty as those who attempt to live their lives without Him. But now as being resurrected, He has moved beyond where men were able to place Him. He is where He has decided to be. Now is the time to meet Him where He chooses to reside. He is among the living. For those who have spirit-life within them and a will todo His Father’s will, their lives will take on their truest meaning. Only there can they find true joy and peace within their souls.
