And the resurrection is real. The women found the tomb empty. The empty tomb was a sign of life, the greatest, most meaningful, life of all. Jesus was raised from the dead and walked and spoke and ate with people before returning to heaven.
Jesus came to seek out and save the lost – all the lost. It is a boundary-breaking call that disrupts social norms. It reveals to us God’s commitment to truly seek out and save everyone who will respond. As recipients of God’s grace, God calls us to the same commitment.
Have you embraced the most amazing new thing of all? I hope you haven’t decided it is only for others. I hope you aren’t turning back to your old favorite blizzard flavor because you aren’t sure you want to accept the new.
