Seek Him this Easter

Happy Easter everyone, This week I want to start off with a verse, Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”  While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place. And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers and said, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day. Matthew 28:1‭-‬15 Isn’t it interesting who found the tomb empty first, it was the two Marys. Back in Bible times, women were not allowed to testify in court. So, if you were going to make up a story about Jesus, you would have skipped the part about the women seeing Jesus first. But, it was included because it was important, it showed something about God’s nature. He chose to appear to the ones who were seeking His body. This Easter He wants you to seek Him and when you seek Him, He will show up in your life. The disciples who were locked in an upper room, fearing for their lives, Jesus showed them that He was alive! I pray that He will show up in your lives, even if you are locked inside due to what is going on in the world. So, this week let’s seek Him and remember what He did for us 2000 years ago on Easter.
