Luke 24:5 “Why do you look for the living among the dead?”
O Risen Savior, these women came in search of something. They found nothing. But in finding nothing, they found more than something. They found that by your resurrection you proved “It is finished,” that all sins have been forgiven. By your resurrection you proved your power over death so that on the last day you will take all believers to be with you in heaven. By your resurrection you proved your power over the devil so that I have your counsel and strength to resist the powers of the devil. You are not dead, you are alive! Help me live for you. In your name I pray. Amen.
