Luke 24:1-12 

The two angels asked the women why they were looking in a tomb for someone who was alive.  Often we run into people who are looking for God among the dead.  They study the Bible as a mere historical document and go to church as if to a memorial service.  But Jesus is not among the dead—he lives!  He reigns in the hearts of Christians, and he is the head of his church.  Do you look for Jesus among the living?  Do you expect him to be active in the world and in the church?  Look for signs of his power—they are all around you.
