Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, "The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again." (Luke 24:5-7)
Yes! He is risen. Glory, hallelujah! But where is he now? The Scriptures tell us that Jesus is seated at the right hand of God. And Jesus said, "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. (John 20:17) Can Jesus be seen today yet a little closer than the immeasurable heights of heaven?
I once read about a man, while serving in the military, who passed away. His toe was labeled and his earthly remains placed in the proper housing; awaiting burial. He still being alive, yet without a body, had the most amazing visit from the Lord Jesus. He then found himself living once again in his earthly body.
Some time later, he was injured in battle and needed medical repair. As the medic ministered to his wounds, he once again felt the presence of Jesus; as it was at the first time of visitation. To no surprise he found out that the medic was a professed Christian. Yes, Jesus' presence could be felt. So, where was he? Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in. (Revelation 3:20) Jesus was in the medic!
Take a look around you today. Do you see him? When you gaze into a mirror, do you see him? Have a blessed Easter holiday.
