The story of how Mary found that the Lord in Whom she had trusted, and Who had died, was now risen, and how the forgiveness of sins can be had through this risen Saviour.

FULL TEXT UNFORMATTED BELOW

If ever there was one who loved the Lord it was Mary Magdalene, and not without good cause. He had transformed her life. At one time she was possessed with seven demons, which led her into all manner of sin and uncleanness, but Jesus Christ had set her gloriously free. Now life was worth living, there was something and someone to live for. At least that was how it had been, until the events of that momentous day unfolded in the city of Jerusalem. The religious leaders had arrested Him, falsely accused Him, handed Him over to the Roman authorities, who crucified Him, and now, as far as Mary was concerned, Jesus Christ was dead! The One she had placed all her faith in, all her hopes, all her love, was dead, and Mary could not see beyond the grave. The darkness within her was greater than the darkness around her on that first day of the week. Her Despair She could have agreed with Paul who wrote to the Corinthians, "If Christ be not risen,... we are of all men most miserable." (1 Cortinthians 15 v 14&19). At that moment this was indeed the misery which Mary felt. Nevertheless, out of devotion for her Lord, Mary, accompanied by the other women, came at first light to the sepulchre, with the intention of anointing His body. As they went, they spoke of the problem that they must face, "Who shall roll us away the stone?" (Mark 16 v 3). Their Difficulty It was impossible for those women to roll away that stone. The disciples who were living in fear would not come and help to move it. The soldiers who had placed the stone there were unlikely to roll it away, nor the Pharisees who had it sealed. So Mary, with her despondent friends, had a great difficulty with the stone that blocked their entrance to the tomb. But what they hadn't yet learned was that heaven has the answer to all earth's problems. God sent an earthquake, the angel of the Lord descended from heaven and that stone became no longer an obstacle but a seat - the angel sat on it (Matthew 28 v 2). The Discovery What a sight! The entrance was clear, but the tomb was empty, and heaven's messenger was going to explain the reason why. But first, "Fear not ye:..." These truly were words of comfort to hearts that were troubled by the unexpected events of that early morning. The discovery of an open tomb had been the answer to one problem but the fact that it was now empty created another. The angel continued, "... for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen , as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay." (Matthew 28 v 5&6). If the message had only been "He is not here...," apart from stating the obvious, it would never have explained what had happened to the Master. But, "He is risen!" That left no room for mere speculation and the first person to see the Lord after He rose from the dead was Mary Magdalene (Mark 16 v 9) and to her mind there was no doubt that "He was alive" (Mark 16 v 10). His Declaration Others had heard the words of the angel, but she heard Him speak her name (John 20 v 16). Peter and John had entered the sepulchre seeing where the Lord had once lay, but Mary "saw Jesus standing," (John 20 v 14). She had heard Him, seen Him, touched Him, it could not be denied that He had risen! "Jesus saith unto her, Touch Me not; for I am not yet ascended to My Father: but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and to My God, and your God." (John 20 v 17) - What a declaration! Your Decision Dear reader, not only has "Christ died for our sins..." and "was buried..." - a proof that He really did die, but "He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" (1 Corinthians 15 v 3&4). The One Whom Mary owned as Lord is risen, demonstrating His mighty power over sin, death and the grave. Perhaps you, like her, have been living a life of sin and under the control of Satan, but long to be saved? God in His word says, "that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" (Romans 10 v 9). The risen Lord wants to be your Saviour but if you reject Him then He will be your judge, "because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead." (Acts 17 v 31) I seek no other argument I want no other plea It is enough that Jesus died And rose again for me.
