“Where have they taken my Lord?”
Mary’s heart was broken at the loss of her teacher……the one who had changed her life. And now, not only had she watched Him die, but the guards at His tomb were gone…..and so was His body.
She had gotten to the tomb early and what she found left her wounded heart bleeding more. The body, the one earthly connection she still had to her Teacher was gone. In her grief, she didn’t notice the folded garment. In her Jewish roots, she knew this to be a sign that a person was coming again. But her grief shielded the truth that was so delicately folded before her.
But then she heard a voiced whisper, “Mary.” She knew that voice!!! And He called her name! What joy! What amazing realization that Jesus really had fulfilled every prophecy.
And He called her name. He gave her an assignment, “Go tell……”
It was a new assignment. A new season. It began the breaking forth of the early church.
Today, He is still calling our names. He still has an assignment for all who turn and recognize that Voice.
Don’t let the grief of your season block out the truth of His promises to you. His voice is whispering, and something new is about to be resurrected!!
He did it for me!
