Looking for Jesus

Much of Luke 24:1-12 is about the disciples looking for the missing Jesus after his resurrection. It was the women who sought him first. They were at a loss because of the empty tomb. A couple of divine messengers pointed them in the right direction. “He is risen.” Then the women told the men about their experience. Most of them at first did not believe. They thought the women were just talking nonsense. They did not look for Jesus. Peter however, was different. He ran to the tomb to look for Jesus. Where do we look for Jesus? I’ll tell you where he is. He is risen. He is with the hungry and thirsty, the homeless and naked, the sick and imprisoned. Jesus is with his church and also out seeking the lost. Where are we looking for Jesus?
