A huge stone moved like an autonomous car

A huge stone rolls aside
Like an autonomous car,
Exposing a glorious light,
Brighter than lightening
And a man in that light
Neatly folding His own burial shroud.
Soon a women comes to mourn.
Shocked by the open tomb,
She notices a human figure
Who she mistakes for the grounds keeper.
“Tell me where you have put Him? she asks weeping.
The figure calls her name; “Mary!”
Suddenly she recognizes that this
Is the dead man walking,
The living, resurrected Jesus!
Through the centuries,
Millions have heard this “grounds keeper”
Call their name.
Have you?

Christ encounter



About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
