Today, at the service my husband (our pastor) mentioned all the probabilities what had actually could have happened with the tomb of Jesus. It was fascinatingly funny to hear what some people imagine took place. But after examining all the evidence & probabilities, we came to conclusion that believing a bodily resurrection of Jesus took place, is the easiest & logical way to believe. God went an extra mile for people in history to make it plain & simple.
What drew my attention the most, was the devotion of women to Jesus.
Often we, as females are challenged with lack or total absence of logic. This is something men blessed with we are reminded.
Well, those women who went early to the tomb had no logic. You would be right here. Jesus was dead. He was already anointed with spices & perfumes, why He needs more? The tomb blocked by a massive stone they could not possibly roll away. Still. Out of their love, devotion & grief towards someone who made an impact on their souls, the women went.
The result was, love driven & loyalty bound against all human logic, the women managed NOT to miss the most epic event in all history of humanity of all times!!!
Next time someone calls you ‘a female without logic’, just remember this story & smile.
- ‘Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.’
Let this devotion of women be inspiring to us all.
Happy & truly blessed Easter to all ! Our Lord has risen & that is all that matter in the Universe the most. Our hope is solid.
