Holy Week: Day 8

The King is Alive!

Mark 16:4-7

Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint Jesus. (Mark 16:1) These three women went to the tomb on the first day of the week (Sunday) to see Jesus and to anoint Him with spices.

When they arrived, they saw that the large stone was not covering the tomb. 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back-it was very large. 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed.

There are four things the angel told the women that we need to heed this Easter Sunday morning:

Do Not Fear v6 - And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed." 
The women were obviously startled when they saw the angel. The angel encouraged them not to be afraid. He was there to give them good news!

Seek Jesus v6 - You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. 
We must consistently seek Jesus keeping our eyes on Him. There is life in no one else!

He Has Risen v6 - He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.
Jesus has risen, just as He said he would! He is not in the tomb. He is alive!

You Will See Him v7 - But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” 

When you have faith and not fear. When you seek Jesus. When you believe that He is Risen and alive today. You Will See Him!!! No, we cannot go to Galilee and see Him in the flesh. But we will see Him - in our daily life, in heaven upon our arrival or on earth upon His return!!!
