Good Life Journal - Mark 16

Scripture:

Mark 16:6-7 – And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed.  You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.  He has risen; he is not here.  See the place where they laid him.  But go tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee.  There you will see him just as he told you.”

Observation:

The angel tells the women to be calm, everything has happened just as Jesus told you.  Jesus, who was crucified, dead and buried in the tomb has resurrected.  The women are to go and tell the disciples that Jesus has risen and is going before them to Galilee.

Application:

The tomb is empty, on the third day he rose!  Jesus has overcome our sin and death to be with the Father just as he told the disciples.  Jesus is alive and nothing can separate us from his love!  Through the cross, an instrument of death, we are given the greatest sacrifice and love ever.

Prayer:

Father,

Thank you for your love, underserving grace and mercy by sending Jesus to the cross to overcome sin/death so we can be reconciled with you.  Let me to remember this daily and never stray from the gospel.  Help me to be a strong witness and disciple to others.
