Resurrection Morning and Victory
“Come see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen.” – Matthew 28:6-7.
Running on Resurrection Morning
In every gospel account of the resurrection morning, it is no accident that running has been mentioned. There were two women who left the scene in joy and haste (Matt, 28:8). The women who had bought prepared spices ran to tell the others (Marl 16:1-8). Peter and John raced to the garden to see the empty tomb (Luke 24:3-4). Christ’s victory over the grave is an exciting truth—a story that must be told!
Edwin S. Johnson said, “One of the greatest missionary texts in all Bible is found in the words of the angel on that first resurrection morn. Four little monosyllable summarize the program and plan of the Lord to reach people with the gospel. Meditate on those four words: come, see, go, and tell. Where could a more complete summary be found?! How could it be more simply stated?! Here is a salvation message and a missionary text all combined.”
Once we have truly come to Christ for salvation and we have seen the truth of the gospel, we must go into all the world and tell others. Our resurrected Lord is building His church and will soon come again.
This truth should make us want to run to tell the good news to others! If the resurrection doesn’t excite and motivate us, perhaps we have not yet fully appreciated its reality and power.
Happy Resurrection Morning to all!
