Jesus’ disciples headed to His tomb early on the Sabbath morning, three days after His funeral. What they found totally shocked and changed humanity. There was absolutely nothing in the tomb. Nobody, not a hair, not a leg, nothing.He rose as He had promised. The reality began to sink into their hearts as the promise became reality. Jesus had defeated sin, sickness, the devil and death. This was an eternal victory that would forever change history. That day was named Sunday. A celebration of the son of God rising up like the sun. A thousands of years later, the empty tomb is still astounding many. Millions travel from everywhere to Jerusalem to take a gaze at the nothing in that tomb. Nothing has ever been so attractive. He has conquered death so we don’t have to live in fear and bondage. The tomb is still empty. The victory still stands. Nothing means everything!
SCRIPTURE READING: LUKE 24:1-6
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. 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? He is not here but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,
Dear God, Thank you for paying the ultimate price for me. And for your resurrection that brings me into a new life. I enter into the fullness of emptiness of your tomb, understanding that your empty tomb means my life is filled with your grace, goodness and glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen
