She saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. 2 So she went running to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said to them, “They’ve taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we…

Most of us fear when something is EMPTY. But being empty is a sign that points to being filled. When the women came to Jesus's tomb to dress Him with spices, they discovered the tomb was EMPTY. Their reaction then was much like ours would be today...astonished. But Jesus teaches a valuable lesson with His Empty tomb. Not just that He is risen, but that the empty tomb points to full-fill-ment of His Word.
Why is the resurrection of Jesus important? What type of resurrection did Jesus have? What would the miracles of the 1st Century do?

'Anyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?, ' Jesus asked. Jesus teaches us that the dead aren't actually dead. They may have left their bodies, but they aren't dead. He restored Lazarus as evidence of this fact. We must decide in whom we will place our trust. We live in a world with many who only trust what they've experienced with their own senses. Jesus has asked us to believe Him, not to deny the experiences of our senses and their reality, rather to acknowledge that our senses may not be receptive of all that exists. There is more and we are challenged to believe the Word of the One who knows and promises that there is more. In Lazarus' resurrection, Jesus shows that those whose bodies have died are themselves not dead. There is a coming resurrection, some will be raised to eternal life and joy and others to eternal contempt and shame. These thoughts shared by Jason Stuart Percy at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL on Sunday, January 30, 2022.

Happy Easter everyone. I don’t think that any of us expected that the pandemic would last until another Easter let alone still be working our way out of it when we first thought about it. It is the unexpected that our world throws at us and it is the unexpected that our God does best when it comes to…
How remarkable that the women find the empty tomb and run to tell the good news to the rest of the disciples? As we find our churches empty, may we be people who celebrate resurrection as the Body of Christ who have been sent out of our gathering places to proclaim the good life for all, wherever we are! The Resurrection Life!
