Luke — Too Amazing to Pass Up!

Day 3170: Starting the last chapter of Luke! Any ideas on where to go from here?

Scripture:  On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. Luke 24:1-3

Thoughts/questions: There are movies and TV shows that will have a situation whereby they need to exhume someone from their grave. Usually the body is found, but sometimes not. The infrequent times when there isn’t a body, nobody shouts that the body might have risen from their grave, but they seek to find out who stole it!

That’s what makes today’s verses too amazing to just skip over! If you’ve been a Christ follower for some time, their is a tendency not to continually live in the realization of the amazing singularity of this event. Jesus ROSE from that eternal tomb! They did not find the body of Jesus.

This event separates Jesus from ALL others, and is something we should celebrate every day! Let the celebration begin!

Suggested Prayer: Dear Jesus, You conquered the grave!!! My hope rests completely in You . . .
