Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen.
Philippians 3:2
There are moments of awe within the Word of God. Can you imagine what it would have been like to have a cosmic front row seat to see God create everything?! How would it have been to stand on the shores of the Red Sea and watch the waters roll up to make a passageway for the children of Israel? Wouldn't you have loved to watch a young boy walk up to a giant of a man and with no fear take the giant down with just one stone? Can you fathom the thrill of the shepherds that watched the sky fill with a host of angels proclaiming the birth of their Messiah? Or, how grieving would it have been to stand helplessly at the foot of the cross as Jesus breathed His last? All of these events would have left us completely in awe, but I know that none of them would have mattered if it were not for the celebrated Easter Sunday! In a quiet garden, with only Roman guards as a witness, the ground shook and the stones gave way as Jesus ended His three day assault on and victory over death and hell. And just as suddenly as He had once spoken all of creation into being, He stepped out of the darkness that could not hold Him into His Father's glorious light. Praise God our Savior is risen! He is risen indeed!
