You see, the empty tomb shows us that God is forever busting out of the tiny boxes we try to put him in. He cannot be confined or contained. He will not be controlled or manipulated. He refuses to be captured or tamed or domesticated. He is always wild and free and alive. We never quite know how or where or when he might show up next, so we have to be awake and alert and attentive. He might show up in the way, or at a time, we least expect it.
The tomb could not contain you, Lord Jesus, and neither can we. Forgive us when we try. Be wild and free and alive in our lives today and every day. Amen.
