John 20: 1-10
On the first day of the week, at the dawning of the new creation, Jesus a rose from the dead. No one saw the event, yet like the apostles, we are called to be witnesses of this central Faith event. The light and power of Christ’s death and resurrection has become the pattern for our living. May we recognize Christ’s dying and rising in our midst. The empty tomb was not a proof of the resurrection, but rather a silent witness of the greatest event of our faith. Seeing the empty tomb, the disciples were motivated to seek the Risen Lord at work in their midst. They saw and believed in the continuing presence of the Lord of love. All the empty and lonely places of human life are precisely where the Lord wishes to work and be revealed.
Prayer: “Lord, Thank you for the lonely places in my life. Show me how to fill them with You.”
