Looking for Life. Luke 24:1-12.
The Bible is filled with some of the greatest questions ever asked. One of the most important happened on the day of Jesus' Resurrection - Why do you look for the living among the dead? Life is the premier value of Christ following and the foundation for all other of its values. Where are you looking for life? It is God's passion to bring life to the dead areas of your existence. Jesus is rarely found where you look for Him.

Let God win your victory for you.

As David was fleeing from Saul, refuge was his rescue. Rather than rushing in to fight a battle, he chose a safe place to hide. We are always looking for a way out, but the way out is to go in #InvokeThePresence. David was a master at avoiding traps. Traps are meant to catch us by surprise and put us into bondage - financial, relational, physical, emotional, and cultural traps. For David, power was a trap. But instead of seizing power, David allowed the Lord to give Him the victory.
