Matthew 28:8 So the women hurried away from the tomb…filled with joy.
O Risen Savior, these women didn’t approach the tomb in this way. Yet their sad and sorrow-filled hearts turned to joy because of your resurrection. It changes everything for us. By your resurrection you changed our status before God from GUILTY to NOT GUILTY. You hijacked us from the road to destruction changing our eternal destination from hell to heaven. You changed our fear from a paralyzing fear like the soldiers, to a fear that loves and trusts in you above all things. Thank you for changing everything for me. May the joy this brings to my heart overflow into my life. Amen.
