Luke 24:1-3 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
Here it is Easter morning and I am issuing an Amber Alert. Mary the Mother of Jesus is crying out, “My Son is missing. He is not where we put Him.”
There will be some who resent my attitude about today. That is okay, I resent calling this day Easter. I’ve struggled with it for decades. Research it all you want, it matters not what it was, why it was established or who celebrated for what purpose. It is my choice to look at the empty tomb and cry out “Have you seen Jesus? Do you know where He is right now?”
The answer to that Amber Alert should be millions upon millions of the faithful crying out; “I have Him. He is right here.”
This Resurrection Sunday. We celebrate that the tomb was empty because it meant that Christ does indeed have power over the grave. He kept His word and He will keep His promise.
What you call today doesn’t matter. What you are teaching your children and the lasting impressions on them does matter. Will they grow up looking for Easter Eggs or showing the world Jesus Christ?
I have found Him. He is here in my heart. Come get to know Him.
