Easter Re:Verse reading–John 20:1-18 (day five)
“They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus.
I love the unchangeable nature of God in this passage. Jesus- “the image of the invisible God” says and does exactly what is described and promised in Psalm 46. “God is… a very present help in trouble.”
In the midst of pain, sorrow, confusion, and uncertainty, Jesus comes close. He begins a conversation, and reveals Himself to Mary.
This is such good news: for those in need, for those who are troubled, for those who are confused, and for those who are burdened. Start the conversation with Him, search the scriptures, pour out your heart, listen and feel His promised presence and help. He is faithful! He is Risen!!
