Soul Snack 42/10 ... The Risen Life - B

An awe-inspiring view of life would capture a vertical Jesus staggering tentatively from His tomb and rubbing bleary eyes as death turned to life and dark to light.

The sight of the risen Jesus is brightness to the Christian life. Surely three days In a tomb meant His eyes were staggered by daylight. So too the eyes of faith will be staggered by the risen Jesus.

Those who are risen with Jesus now have the staggering bright light of faith. They now have a staggering future.

"Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him." (Mark 16:6)
