EMPTINESS THAT PORTRAY FULFILLED PROMISES (Part 1b)

Monday 12th April, 2021.

SCRIPTURE FOR THE DAY:
Luke 24:1-12

SCRIPTURES IN FOCUS
Luke 24:2-3,12 NKJV
But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. [3] Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. [12] But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.
Let us take a look at the first “emptiness that is full of promises”.
1. Significance of the Empty Grave.
When the women went to the tomb with spices that early morning, they found the stone had been rolled away and when they went in, they did not find the body of Jesus Christ (Luke 24:1-3).
In a conversation with one Apostle, he made this profound statement that the stone was rolled away for the women and the other disciples to be able to get into the tomb to find that Jesus had risen. It was not rolled away for Jesus to come out because when the disciples had locked themselves in a room, Jesus appeared there with them without the doors being opened. (John 20:19-23).
The empty grave gives us an assurance to find hope in the midst of our trials, challenges and problems. The moment they saw the empty tomb, they were reminded of the promise of the Lord Jesus that He would rise on the third day of His crucifixion.
When we remember the empty grave, we are reminded that hope is alive because Jesus is alive. Nothing can entomb us that the Lord cannot free us from.

Lesson
Let us see the big picture of an empty grave, no matter any adversity in life that seems to keep us burried. We have hope in the risen Christ.

Prayer
Precious Holy Spirit help me not to waver in my faith when going through trials.

Thought For The Day
Let us walk by faith to make sure the empty grave makes a positive impact in our lives.
