Part of being a Christian is fostering our personal faith and walk with Christ. Not only are we part of a wider corporate body of Christ, but more importantly we are a people personally saved.
We all have one… an empty tomb, a place where our earthly ideals have been laid to rest only to find greater peace in a relationship with Christ. We all have an empty tomb where we chose to leave behind those tattered rags of self and step out into the light.
We drop our beliefs and desires on alters of stone and allow God to take such an incomplete, limited life and mould it by His design.
We leave behind an empty tomb not just of corporate desires and universal sins but moreover the very personal twists and turns of our own Journey.
Just as we choose to receive God and believe in the miracle of the resurrection, so to we have chosen to rise from our tomb of suffering. From every dark thing that pulled us down, each moment that drove us to anger and each interlude where we danced with the devil in despair.
We all have an empty tomb… but sometimes we need to make the choice to take a step away from death and toward life. Just as Jesus stepped out of the coldness of the stone so must we.
Which direction will your next step be?
