“Why do you look for the living among the dead?” Luke 24:5b
This question struck a cord in me this morning.
So many times we look for our “needs” to be met among things that are dead – or – that are lacking in real power to meet our need.
We try to fill our emotional hunger with things like shopping, eating, social activities, gaming, TV viewing, drinking, drugs, sex. The list is endless.
But each of these “things” lack the power to truly and fully meet our need. They are, in a sense, dead. Powerless. Impotent.
We need to seriously ask ourselves what dead things we are personally seeking. We need to question why we are using dead things to meet those needs? Then we need to make a conscious decision to choose to seek the Living One as the only Source of Life that can and will thoroughly meet our need to the uttermost.
