The stone the Angel rolled away!


THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so they could embalm Him. Very early on Sunday morning, as the sun rose, they went to the tomb. They worried to each other, “Who will roll back the stone from the tomb for us”? Mark 16:1-3

They worried to each other, “Who will roll back the stone from the tomb for us”?

This seemed like a very petty issue but let me assure you, it wasn’t. The stone weighed about 2 tons according to studies made so that means the women had no hope of moving that stone. What struck me about this story was why such a seemingly meaningless concern was mentioned in the bible. Who cares about a stone?

The women had a concern which seemed meaningless but it wasn’t. An angel rolled the stone away! Their concern wasn’t too small for God. He helped them by sending an angel to roll it away!!

This shows me that no request is too small for God. It seemed like a small thing but it wasn’t and God took it seriously! What concerns do you have? You can bring them to God, no matter how big or small, He wants to help.

Do not be afraid……


THOUGHT OF THE DAY

I read something that gave me so much hope today. It really gave me peace when I read it. This is what I read,

Jesus takes our fears seriously!

That is what I read. So simple but yet so profound.

He doesn’t laugh at our fears, 

He doesn’t take them as a joke, 

He doesn’t water them down, 

He doesn’t ignore our fears, 

Instead, He takes notice and He identifies with them. He desires us to be free of our fears.

He sent His Son to die so we could be free of our fears…..
