By The Way...


That tomb stands empty, silently shouting the overwhelming truth of His promise to us...

"...And the third day He shall RISE again." Matthew 20:19 

He died on that cruel cross that we might be justified by His grace and be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. And yet, He LIVES!

Today we reflect on the Resurrection of Christ! Many of us will be getting together with family and friends. Today can we not be aware of His presence in our "everyday"?  All the laughing over funny moments, hugs because we love, praying thankfulness over food...He is here. We were talking last night of the men on the road to Emmaus. These men walked with Jesus, talked with Him, invited Him to eat with them. And as He blessed the food, their eyes were opened....

"And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him; and he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to another, did not our heart BURN within us, while He talked with us By The Way?...." Luke 24:31-32

As we walk by the way, and lie down, and rise up, may our hearts burn within us of the undeniable  assurance that Christ in not dead, but alive! He is RISEN!
