On Easter morning, the women who came to the tomb were asked, “Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here; he has been raised.”
Jesus Christ broke the power of death and overturned its kingdom, which is why we can confidently work against evils like abortion and euthanasia. How easy it is for people to seek the living one among the dead. Despair causes them to look to death as a solution. People are made to think that freedom consists in the ability to choose death, either for themselves or their children. But this freedom and these solutions are only in Jesus Christ. We are not to seek the living one among the dead. He is not there. He has been raised, he lives forevermore, and he gives us the power to choose life.
