Luke 24:6 The men said, “Why are you looking for the Living One in a cemetery?” (The Message Bible)
Don’t you love Easter Egg hunts? Before covid we had one each year with hundreds of plastic eggs scattered all around the grounds. Inside each egg was a piece of candy and children would seek them out, open them up and enjoy the treat. But this would only happen once a year for an hour. At no other time would children come nor would their parents bring them to look for eggs among the bushes. If they did, we would think it very strange. Even if they came the very next day, we would have to tell them the eggs are all gone and ask “didn’t you see the date and time on the signs or website?” In the above passage, the men (we later hear they are angels) tell the women who came to anoint Jesus’ body that they are too late. Jesus was no longer there. Had they missed the signs? They certainly had missed them! How about you? Where are you looking for Jesus this Easter?
