And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: (Luke 24:5-6)~ Jesus said that he came that we may have LIFE and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). He is the ONLY “GOD” that IS RISEN from the dead. EVERY other ‘representation’ man has come up with for a ‘god’ is dead. Where are these ‘gods’ of the elements and power and strength; these ‘gods’ of various religions and sects and cults? What LIFE can they give us? What LIFE do they HAVE? How can we look for eternal salvation, divine protection and guidance or quality of life from a ‘god’ that is dead? How can we worship a ‘god’ that is created but created nothing? Every other ‘god’ that there ever was – died and worshipping them is to worship the dead.
To worship Jesus is to worship THE living God! See, it is with divine and eternal purpose that Jesus died…But He is RISEN; YES! HE GOT UP!!! All power in Heaven and Earth is His and all things are created by Him, for Him, in Him and through Him – without Him there is not one thing that ‘was’. In Him we live, we move and have our being! It is Him that we must seek…among the living…that is, we will not find the answers to life by seeking it in the world of dead ‘gods’ but in Christ, the ONLY true and LIVING God! I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the LIVING (Ps 27:13). Happy and Blessed Easter Sunday to you and your family!
