Death Leads to Life

John 20:15-16

Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” She thought it was the gardener and said to him, “Sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and I will take him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni,” which means Teacher.

How hard it is to lose someone we love. Mary of Magdala had witnessed her beloved friend…the one who had turned her life around…brutally killed on the cross. Mary of Magdala had been one of the few who did not abandon Jesus when He was crucified. She was also one of the few who were there when His body was taken from the cross. When Jesus’ followers were all hiding in fear…she had come to hold vigil at His tomb. She must have been crushed by all that had happened. What amazing love she must have had for Him! What joy she must have experienced…and what joy we should all experience in realizing that the risen Christ lives! Death is not the end. Allow this to lift you! Death leads to life! Alleluia!
