The adventure continues

RE Verse reading–Mark15:40-47, 16:1-8 (day six)  “And there were many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem”  (15:41)  I wonder whether they expected life to change permanently when they decided to go with Him.  They must have known the danger.  It must have been a sacrifice, a labor of love.   Their tender/feminine hearts must have been particularly devastated to see Him arrested and crucified.  Would they go home, now?  No time to answer the question.  Work to do.  Then the empty tomb and the angel words, “He is going ahead of you to Galilee!”  (16:7)  Did they dare imagine that these words included them too?  The adventure had not come to an end–a new, next chapter was just beginning.  It has always been so for me, as I have followed Christ.  Just as one door closes, another opens.  There are no dead ends on this road, not with a Savior who is eternally alive and active.  The adventure continues!
