Is resurrection real?

Read Luke 24:1-12

We revisit the story of resurrection in those moments when we experience tragedy and face unimaginable loss.  We revisit it when we are alone in the dark wondering if it really is all true and our mind is in a state of wrestling.
Did God really raise Jesus from the dead?  Has death really been overthrown?  Is there really nothing that can oppress us or separate us from the love of God?
We revisit the story because we return to these questions and wait for God to open us up and change us from the inside out as they become statements of faith.  Jesus did really rise from the dead, the tomb really was empty, death has been overthrown, there is really nothing that can oppress us or separate us from the love of God!

Prayer:  God, breathe resurrection in all of the dead spaces in my life.  In my refusal to let go and move forward, in my moments of holding tightly onto grudges rather than grace, in my moments where I find more comfort in staying put rather than allowing you to guide me to joy and growth.  Amen.
