And The Stone was Rolled Away

skyhangs
He tells us in His Word the darkness lifted at 3 on Good Friday
But what was it like then through Saturday?

I picture God’s sky
His canvas hanging low not high

skyhung

For He knew the heavy leaven
In souls who did not trust or were ignorant to heaven

Shock-filled tears
Their Lord lost only after just after 3 years

Such restraint
The women had to wait

Until the morning
The one wrapped in foretold glory

Spices in hand
They walk solemnly, in reverence, through the sand

My Lord, where have they taken him?

Her panic, her grief,
Hung in disbelief

He was here
In the tomb

The angel spoke,

Do not fear
But don’t look for the living among the dead here

He is risen!

Like a prism, Mary’s countenance
Reflected her love so brilliant

After hearing her name
She recognized her Teacher, Jesus of Nazarene

Yes, oh yes!
He rose from death!

No power on earth, no will of man
Could ever again arrest or kill the Son of Man

Jesus Christ
Our Lord is alive!

Mary went to tell the others
She, the first messenger of our Resurrected Savior to her brothers

The world as all, even Jews, had known it
Would never be the same again

~~~

He (Jesus) asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”

Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni! (which means Teacher)” (John 20:15-16).

~~~

Hallelujah for the Cross! He is risen, indeed!

I can barely contain my Hallelujah.

Before I knew Christ and what He did for me, I was selfish, thinking only how everything in the world affected me.

When you begin to allow His love poured out in blood, in living sacrifice, your heart becomes thank-full at every turn. For without Him, I would have continued a slow death in my flesh, leaving behind an empty legacy.

Thank you, Jesus, for showing the world what love means, for defeating the enemy so that we have hope for today and tomorrow, and thank you for always calling us by name back to your arms.
