The Joyous Easter Message According to Matthew, Chapter 28 (Verses 1-10)

April 23, 2014

After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men.

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This is my message for you.”

So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
(Matthew 28:1-10)

  1. I won’t tell you anything new, but this is the same with everything in life.
    You would think experience showes us anything, but alas.
    Feel free to disagree but the world is changing, and none of us have no control whatsoever over it.
    E.g., If only Barack had enough balls to put Russian bear to his place, but it seems like it’s not happening, welcome third world war.
    Awesome post, thanks!

    • Thank you, Sarah, for your affirming words about this post. I think what you’ve identified in your comment is that we are all infected with evil. The Good News of Easter is that there is a solution – the life of our Risen Lord within, to transform and make new. I pray for all of us to receive and continue to grow in this life, and be instruments of God’s peace who spread God’s loving reign.
