1 Corinthians 15: 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me. 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.
12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised; 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, your faith also is in vain. 15 Moreover, we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised; 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 18 Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ only in this life, we are of all people most to be pitied.
Tourists flock every year to see the supposed tomb of Jesus. I don’t have to go very far to see a hole in the ground which is really all the tombs consisted of from that day to this. Who knows? Didn’t Jesus ask; “Why do you seek the living among the dead?” (Luke 24:5)
If we would but walk apart from the hue and cry of the world and seek the wilderness places even if we never leave our living rooms. But to meet Jesus in the wild places in our hearts and began to focus on just being with Him, how different would our lives be? Truly, Heaven’s mountains are not very far away. Like Moses you might hear the sound of singing to all the false gods of the world. [Exodus 21: 17 Now when Joshua heard the sound of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a sound of war in the camp.” 18 But he said,
“It is not the sound of the cry of victory,
Nor is it the sound of the cry of defeat;
But I hear the sound of singing.”]
Imagine, a craggy shoreline where you can walk along the beach and see His footprints next to your own even in the midst of your worst struggles. This is something that is attainable in your spirit if you take the time and make the effort to “center down’ on Jesus and see only Him.
