Just as the Chilean Miners were pull from their living tomb trapped deep in the mine, so does Jesus want to pull us from our living tombs of depression, regret, addiction, sin, etc... and set us free. Jesus' resurrection gives us hope that we too can rise from the countless little deaths we suffer with his help across the Red Sea. Jesus is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
