Luke 24:2-5 -- On Seeking the Living Among the Dead

"And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?"
Luke 24:2-5

I think this is kind of cool, that Christ left some angels to remind people who were looking for him in the wrong place to seek him elsewhere.

We sometimes make a similar error in our own lives when we think of Christ living in the past in Jerusalem, and not as someone who is alive right now and accessible to us through prayer.  Easier really than picking up the phone.  Prayer can't be canceled for unpaid bills, doesn't depend on an internet connection, can't be stolen, and can't break.  ... So no excuses for not staying in touch. :)

Christ rising from the dead doesn't mean just that once a long, long time ago, but it means he is alive now, and we can have him as a part of our lives as well.  Today, let's seek the living Christ.
