"Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division." - Luke 12:51
One week from tomorrow will be Resurrection Sunday. This will be a day of great celebration and rejoicing throughout the Christian community. A vast multitude will gather to lift up their voices in praise and worship of the risen Savior. Yet, while churches across the land will be filled with believers, there will also be a larger number who will be unmoved.
On this day, some will have an empty tomb and a full life, and others will have a full tomb and empty life. The empty tomb is THE watershed of history. Those who have received the risen Christ are transformed by his light and those who reject him are still trembling in the darkness. The empty tomb has given undaunted faith to the believer and unending fear to the unbeliever. There can be no greater division.
When you see the golden morning sun, lit up with great splendor, are you ready for a beautiful day? Then, as you see the Son of God, risen from the dead in all his glory, embrace Him as the Lord of life and rejoice. Many will reject him to their sorrowful loss, but you my friend, choose the high road today and celebrate the One who brought division through an empty tomb!
