Devotion 4.16.17

He is risen!  He is risen indeed, hallelujah!

"'Greetings!' And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, 'Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.'" (Matthew 28:9-10)

Greetings!  The risen Lord greets Mary Magdalene and "the other Mary" as they run back to Galilee, seeing His body was not in the tomb and being instructed by an angel that He was going to Galilee to see His disciples.  As they run back, Jesus greets them and instructs them the same - go to Galilee and instruct my disciples.

Our own eternal lives now assured through the resurrection of Christ.  Will Christ say the same to us when we see Him for the first time?  "Greetings!" 

Pray a prayer of thanksgiving for the eternal life given us through Christ's suffering, death, and resurrection, and pray that when we see Him, we hear him greet us as He did those He saw after His own resurrection.

Hope Men's Ministry

Read 1 Corinthians 15:1 - 15
