Luke 24:1-7 (NLT)
1 But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 3 So they went in, but they didn�t find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. 5 The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, �Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? 6 He isn�t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.�

The event above follows the crucifixion of Jesus. Those who traveled to the tomb were doing so to anoint the body of Jesus with burial spices. When they arrived they were surprised His body was not there. Instead they were greeted by angles who asked them an important question, �Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive?� For Jesus had told them that He would rise to life after his crucifixion.


I�m going to leave a simple question for those who read this to think about: Are you looking for Jesus somewhere besides where He told us He would be? In other words are you trying to fill your life with something besides Jesus?
