Read Today’s DCLM Daily Manna Devotional written by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi
TOPIC: HE IS RISEN!
TEXT: JOHN 20:1-10
Key Verse: “For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead” (John 20:9).
Faith is trusting God even when you do not understand His plan. During the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, He never minced words about His mission on earth coupled with the reality about His betrayal, death, burial, resurrection and ascension.
Mary Magdalene, one of the followers of the Saviour whom He had set free from sin and delivered from demonic powers, driven by passion and gratitude, on one of her visits to the tomb to anoint His body, discovered that the stone covering the entrance had been rolled away and the body of Jesus Christ seemingly missing. Not able to comprehend what actually happened, she went to report her findings to Peter and John who also came, saw but went back home not able to really figure out what must have happened.
But Mary, for her piety and passion to see her Redeemer, decided to remain there. This act of devotion and commitment eventually gifted her with the glorious privilege of being the first to see the physically risen Lord. Hers was a heart full of grace, gratitude, extraordinary courage and steadfastness that made her defy all odds in her quest to unravel the mystery of her resurrected Lord.
The slowness of the disciples to easily remember and believe the story of His resurrection made Christ to upbraid them at a later meeting. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is very significant to our faith and it gives us hope of a blissful eternity. The Master still calls us today to a life of wholehearted devotion, piety and commitment to Him and His cause.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ signifies victory over satanic machination and powers. As we trust Him today and lay hold on His promises, He will make us experience our own resurrection on the last day.
Thought for Today: The Christian’s hope of heaven is rooted in Christ’s resurrection.
Bible in one Year: JOHN 10 – 12
