Read Matthew 28:5-6.
The angel greets the startled women at the empty tomb. When I dwell on the angel’s words, deeper truths resonate with me.
The angel is not simply there as a greeter at an exhibit. I love his insightful comment, “I know you’re looking for Jesus.”
In some way, aren’t we all? We are all seekers on the journey of life. Some of us have found Jesus but still have a ways to go to discover him more. Some of us are yet to discover the sweet joy of knowing him.
Either way, the answer lies in the empty tomb. He is the resurrection and the life for all who seek Him.
The angel invites the women to “come and see.” Every seeker discovers Jesus through a personal experience. It has to be a one-on-one transaction: my sin for his forgiveness. I have to come to Jesus, just as I am, without one plea, but that his blood was shed me.
Bringing It Home
Where am I on my journey of seeking God? Do I need to “come and see?”
Father, Thank you for putting that God-shaped vacuum in my heart. Nothing I have and nothing I do can fill that void. So, I simply come to Jesus. Amen.
