THE SERVANT GENERAL
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
SEEKING THE RISEN JESUS AMONG THE DEAD
“Why do you seek the living one among the dead?”
Jesus is alive. We love and serve a living God. Jesus is one
who has conquered death, darkness and sin. But oftentimes
the life of Christ is not evident in us. The power of his
Spirit is not fully manifest in us. We continue to wallow
in what is of death.
What brings death? Sin, doubt, fear, infidelity, hopelessness,
impurity, hatred, rivalry, envy, factions, selfishness and
the like. We profess to be followers of Christ, but we, perhaps
unwittingly, seek him in works of death.
Well, we are not going to find Jesus there. “He is not
here, but he has been raised.” (Lk 24:6a). He is risen.
He is alive.
Our choice: remain in the tombs among the dead, or really
be with Jesus, who is alive.
