God is God of the living and not of the dead.

Have you ever felt like your heart is so worn out, battered and bruised, that you are just dead inside?  It is just at these times that God invites us to come alive in Him, to cut through all the conflicts in our lives and refocus on Him.

In today’s gospel reading (Lk 20:27-38) the Sadducees are seeking to trap Jesus in a web of technical details.  In response, Jesus turns everything around and reveals God’s love for ALL.  In our own lives we can often get caught in the mire of details as we try to figure out what is right and what is wrong.  At these times, it is best to keep our eyes focused on the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and then everything will fall into place.  Sometimes when we are stuck between two choices we need to look between the two and find God in the mix.  He will reveal himself to us by bringing our hearts to life.  Remember, God is God of the living and not of the dead.  Seek out those places where God dwells, where life flourishes, and you will find His Kingdom.
