Matthew 28:8,10 niv

Standard

moon2As the two women were on their way to tell the disciples about
the empty tomb and what the angel had said to them, they met Jesus.
They touched His feet, yes, He was real, and they worshiped Him.
 He gave them the message for the disciples but first
He told them not to be afraid.

Why did He tell the women not to be afraid?
Why does He tell you not to be afraid?
Could it be because He wants you to know;
with Him there is nothing to fear?
(Isa 41:10)

tombThe women went to the tomb wanting to see Jesus.
What they saw; stunned soldiers, an empty tomb, and an angel.
Imagine what they must have felt seeing all this
and then to have the angel tell them that
Jesus is alive!

What do you think you would have felt and thought?
What do you think and feel when you read this passage?

Blessings this day of grace,

Matthew 26:38-40 niv

Standard

gardenJesus knew what the next few hours would bring.
He asked His disciples to stay awake with Him; to help Him through the night.
That was all.  Be with Him, stay awake, while He prayed to His Father.
The only time He asked them to do something, not for others but for Himself,
and they fell asleep.

The next day Jesus would die for them.

Is Jesus asking you to be alert today?  
What is more important to you; your comfort or Jesus?

Blessings this day of grace,
