To those of you who were, or potentially are readers of this blog page, I apologize for the delay… Life has been a bit crazy, but at some level that is just an excuse… so I simply say… “I’m Sorry”
Yesterday was Easter and I had a great day with friends and family. I hope you did too.
In our church service, we covered the story of the ladies going to the empty tomb, and then they come back and they start telling the others. Then in verse 12 of chapter 24 in Luke, we see this:
“Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.”
I would like to think that I would have done the same. I love the passion of Peter. Obviously, Peter didn’t get everything right in his life… but you cannot discard the passion and fervor that he lived with… I would like to think that if I lived in that time… and had just been through the emotions of that weekend, that at the news that Jesus was alive, I would have ran towards the tomb.
So, the challenge today, the encouragement for us, is to run towards Jesus… live passionately!
