He is risen


nothere2

At the crack of dawn on Sunday, the women came to the tomb carrying the burial spices they had prepared.  They found the entrance stone rolled back from the tomb, so they wallked in.  But once inside, they couldn’t find the body of the Master Jesus.

They were puzzled, wondering what to make of this.  Then, out of nowhere it seemed, two men, light cascading over them, stood there.  The women were awestruck and bowed down in worship.  The men said, “Why are you looking for the Living One in a cemetery?  He is not here, but raised up.  Remember how he told you when you were still back in Galilee that he had to be handed over to sinners, be killed on a cross, and in three days rise up?”  Then they remembered Jesus’ words.

–Luke 24:1-8, from Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase The Message:  The Bible in Contemporary Language

May we all remember to look for the Living One not in the darkness, but where the Light shines.

Happy Easter, one and all.  He is risen indeed.
