And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?” Luke 24:5 ESV
These faithful and loyal women were not seeking their risen Lord. They were desiring to give their crucified Rabbi his due honor and respect among the dead. It’s a question worth pondering in our present lives. When and how do we act as if Jesus is not our risen Lord. When do we show respect to the historical Jesus but act as if he is not present in our given circumstances?
He is risen! Hallelujah! Let’s go and live our lives accordingly.
