Victory Over Death!

We have a Saviour who is victorious over death.
He "ever liveth."

On the third day the tomb was empty! The grave-clothes were all in order. Jesus had risen from the dead, but not as others had done. When Lazarus came forth, he was bound in his grave-clothes. He came out in his natural body. But when Jesus came forth His natural body was changed to a spiritual body. The changed body came right out of its linen wrappings and left them. ( John 20:6-8)

Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away. Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept she saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn't recognize him until He spoke to her and called her by name.
"Mary!" Jesus said.
She turned to him and cried out "Rabboni!" (which is Hebrew for, "Teacher.")

Jesus' appearances, ten in all, after His resurrection, helped His disciples to believe that He was God. Jesus wanted every doubt to be removed from each one of His disciples.
They must carry out His great commission and bear the Gospel into all the world (John 20:21)
Jesus gave Peter (the disciple who denied Him three times) an opportunity of confessing Him three times. He restored him to full privileges of service again.

Christ only wants those who love Him to serve Him. If you love Him, you must serve Him. No one who loves Christ can help but serve.

Jesus words to each of us is "Follow thou Me".

May we all follow Him in loving obedience
"till He come"!
