Outside the tomb of Jesus, Mary Magdalene lingered. Mary, from whom Jesus had cast out seven demons, lingered and wept after Peter and John had departed. She alone was compelled to remain beyond any other. Though Jesus was dead (for all she knew) she could not escape the impulse which held her there when others departed.
As one writer expressed, for Mary, “In vain does Calvary proclaim that the Lord is dead, in vain does the tomb declare that He had been buried, in vain does the absent stone suggest that they have taken Him away - this threefold witness will not convince Mary that He has gone out of her life forever. And why? Because in the depth of her being there was an even more emphatic witness which would not be silenced but continued to protest that she must receive Him back, since He is her Savior...Once given the intimate bond of faith between a sinner and his Savior, there can be no death to such a relationship.” A few moments later, joy unspeakable dawned upon her soul as the risen Lord revealed himself to her.
Do you believe in the resurrection of Christ? Do you know this bond between sinner and Savior?
