Guess What?  The Tomb is Still Empty!

"Parched" Series

Reverend Dan is preaching.
Luke 24:1-8

Christians are just different.  

So many other people in the world travel all over to go and visit the burial sights of so many famous and historical figures.  Not Christians.  We travel to Jerusalem from the four corners of the globe to visit and empty tomb.  We go to visit the place where Jesus has left.  Even the angels in today’s text ask Mary, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; he IS risen!”  The key word in that text is the word “is.”  Jesus is risen.  That means that his resurrection is something that is still happening in our world each and every day.  As we all stood in line to go inside the Garden Tomb, what were we expecting to see?  NOTHING!  It was and still is an empty tomb.  My Savior is alive!  My Savior is still risen!  Jesus is still changing lives right now.  Has he changed yours?
