S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
Very early on the Sunday morning following the crucifixion, some of the women who had been with Jesus during His ministry went to the tomb. But an angel said, “He is not here for He has risen.”
One of the reasons I love this passage is because it reminds us that, “Jesus Keeps His Promises.” He had told his disciples that He would be killed and after three days He would resurrect. That’s exactly what happened here. The women believed in Jesus, but it is obvious they didn’t believe Jesus. He had never given them a reason not to believe Him while He ministered on earth, but that’s while He was alive. Now He was dead. They must have thought, “How can a dead person keep His promise?” They evidently had forgotten as well that Jesus claimed to be God. So once again the women didn’t believe Jesus. However, that morning everything changed for those women. They discovered that Jesus was God, and that He did come back on the third day, and most of all they learned that, “Jesus Keeps His Promises.”
I want to thank You this AM for always keeping Your promises. I believe You! Amen
