Matthew 28

Today we are reading Matthew 28. In this chapter we read about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. “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. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped 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 ‭28:1-10‬ ‭ESV‬‬ The disciples went from the lowest of lows (the suffering and death of Jesus) to the highest of highs (the Resurrection). It’s hard for us to grasp what they went through—in just a few days. Some still doubted. Why? I believe they doubted because their grief pain wouldn’t allow them to entertain thoughts of Jesus being alive. They couldn’t emotionally risk losing Him again. Does your pain limit your faith in Jesus? May God heal you today from the pain behind your doubt. Pastor Tim
