MAY: A living sacrifice

(Continued)

Or had it? The women stand wide-eyed and fearful for the stone at the tomb is as missing as its guards. Grave clothes are folded. Spices are not needed. On a slab prepared for a dead body sits an angel with an “I told you so” smirk on his face and a “He is not here” on his lips.

This Easter, peek inside the tomb, but don’t pause. Stare briefly at the suffering, but quickly set it aside. Push away the image of the cross for there is no one on it. Fist-bump the angel because his words are true. Don’t look here for the living.

 

— Tom May is the Minister of Discipleship at Eastside Christian Church in Jeffersonville. He is an adjunct instructor in the Communications Department at Indiana University Southeast.
