It Is The Empty Grave of Christ That…

I can’t overstate the fact that it is the empty grave of Christ that causes me to not lose hope regardless of how impossible a situation may seem.

It is the empty grave of Christ that enables me to see not only what is, but also what can be.

It is the empty grave of Christ that gives me strength to go on even when gripped by weariness.

It is the empty grave of Christ that validates the life of Christ and his promises of eternal life to those that trust, obey, hold on to, and serve him.

It is the empty grave of Christ that keeps me from being anxious about the future.

It is the empty grave of Christ that convinces me that God, not man, has the final word.

It is the empty grave of Christ that shows me that God can turn what seems to be defeat into victory.

It is the empty grave of Christ that convinces me that with God all things are possible.

I encourage you to read the scripture below, meditate on it, and finish the sentence for your self: It is the empty grave of Christ that…

Luke 24

The Resurrection

1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing; 5 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? 6 He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, 7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” 8 And they remembered His words, 9 and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles. 11 But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them. 12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he *saw the linen wrappings only; and he went away to his home, marveling at what had happened.

John
