Luke 24: 1 Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 3 Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. 5 Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?
I woke up with the sentence in my head :
Why do you seek the living among the dead?
Why do we seek the approval of man instead of Jesus?
Why do we uplift others opinions as fact rather than the words that Jesus spoke over us?
Why do we find our identity in who are friends are?
Why do we seek to glorify ourselves?
Why do we offer up our bodies as sacrifice to artificial love?
Why do we care more about people on Facebook than God?
Why do we care so much about our filtered image on Instagram when this flesh is just a tent?
Why do we speak death instead of life?
Why do we yoke up with worry?
Why do we yoke up with disdain?
Why do we yoke up with gossip?
Why don’t we pray when things are good?
Why don’t we care more?
Why do we not know what is going on in the world?
Why are we not concerned with the political arena?
Why do we dismiss dominion and embrace bondage?
Why do we dismiss self control and embrace victimization?
Why do we make excuses to continue to move, and breathe, and have our being in dead carcasses and not live in a breathing, moving Holy Spirit?
Why not look again into a mirror and see the reflection that can bring us a life worth living eternally?
Why do we continue to seek the living among the dead?
