Mark 16:8. Then they went out and ran from the tomb, for terror and bewilderment had seized them. And they said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.

We see this day as a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.  The disciples didn’t feel that day.  They were already confused, disappointed and feeling guilty.  The missing body of Jesus just led to more confusion.  In the current political climate the feared the Romans had hidden Him.  Even though Jesus had told them several times what would happen they were unable to comprehend.  It was one thing raising Lazarus from the dead but raising Himself after such physical devastation was incomprehensible.  Today we have the witness reports in the Bible and confirmation of the Holy Spirit so we believe and can celebrate.  What better way to celebrate than to share with someone how to have eternal life with God.  Our question is, will we do it?

Privlege

Luke 12:23;31 Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well (The Holy Bible, New International Version).

The closer Jesus gets to Jerusalem the more intense He is on our not seeking after the material things of this earth. We are here to connect with His power to bring His Kingdom to this earth. He doesn’t need it to be that way. God is entirely capable of doing whatever He wants whenever He wants. But God has adopted us as His children through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. That makes us joint heirs with Him. As joint heirs we have joint privileges as well as joint responsibilities. We have been given the privilege of uniting with God’s power to bring about His kingdom on this earth. What a great privilege. What great responsibility. Yet, we insist on keeping our eyes on the lesser important things. We continue not to trust God with our basic needs. We continue to look to ourselves for our power or to other things like money, control and more you can name. Our question is are we willing to trust God with our basic needs, roll up our sleeves so to speak, learn how to be and do from His written word and get busy through prayer, obedience and service surrounded by our love for God? Our question is what is our priority for today? I pray we agree with God’s priority. Let’s keep our faces set toward our Jerusalem and be alert to all God puts in our path as we walk.
