Happy Easter

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.

And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”

And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.

But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.

Luke 24:1-12 (ESV)

Happy Easter to each and every one of you.

The Christian Dismissal of Another’s Suffering

God sets up some things in the world to come about only through prayer. Sometimes he wants you to pray for your suffering. But often we just refuse to pray, dismissing our own suffering as trivial. We deny God’s assistance and refuse to hand over our problems to him thinking he has other suffering to worry about. Denying our own suffering, even when it is small, denies God the ability to comfort us. It is not selfishness to surrender all our burdens to the Lord. It is selfishness to assume God should not be bothered when he has told us to let him carry our burdens.
