4/16/14 Daily Devotion

Matthew 28:1-2 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.

What were the Marys thinking as they walked down that path? How broken were their hearts as they contemplated seeing their Lord lifeless? We can only imagine; but if we have lost someone we love, we can imagine a little better. We understand how difficult it is to lose someone that has had a great impact on our lives. We understand how difficult it is to walk into the funeral home and view the body of someone that has changed our lives. So in a very small way, we can understand how the Marys felt. Have you ever considered how you feel about the death of Jesus? Have you really considered how hard it was for Him to endure all He did so forgiveness could be extended? We know what Jesus did for us, but how much time have we spent truly considering the extent of His love that was expressed on the cross? As Christians, we must spend a considerable amount of time contemplating the action of Jesus, contemplating the love He expressed for us on the cross.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me come to feel the extent of Your love as I consider what You have done for me on the cross of Calvary.
