Wednesday, March 10th

It is hard to admit but… sometimes staying inside the tomb is the more comfortable option.

The reason for this is that the One who calls us out of it is calling us into His life. And His life is not easy. It is joyful but it is not easy. It is real but it is not easy. It is abundant but it is not easy.

Jesus’ heart broke for the poor and the outcast. He calls us to have the same heart. Jesus spoke the truth in love and He calls us to do the same. Jesus stood by his convictions in wonderfully graceful ways and we are all called out of our tomb to do the same. Oi!

Can you feel the tension? Can you understand why not coming out of the tomb might be the more comfortable option?

And yet, at the end of the day or week or…well… really long periods of time those who have followed Jesus’ call out of the tomb get to know something that those who don’t never understand. It is the power of resurrection.

Dear Lord, today with its challenges is a good day to walk in the light of your love. Please help me do it. Amen.
