Gospel of John, chapter 11, “But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. Then they said to her, ‘Woman, why are you weeping?’ She said to them, ‘Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don’t know where they have laid Him.'”
Many people today are sad that Jesus of history has been hidden from them, and they’ve been told that He’s no longer a relevant part of our present world. Oh, how wrong they are! Appearing in an ordinary body, Jesus called her name, as only her creator and Lord could.
Once again today, you and I must allow Christ to speak through us and through our voices to call people back into a living relationship with the living God one more time.
It’s time to pray.
