The women who waited at the tomb and never left the Lord’s side just happened to be the ones who worshipped at his feet. One was Mary of Bethany who broke the alabaster box and anointed him with oil. The other, Mary of Magdalene was set free of seven spirits and loved him deeply.
They never left his side. They had experienced such love and forgiveness that even in the face of death they risked going to the tomb where the guards had been stationed. They could have been arrested or suffered death. But they did not fear, because perfect love had already overcome them.
The disciples didn’t show up but the true worshipers did. The ones who had been broken and were forgiven much. And an angel of the Lord protected them and the guards were knocked out. They were the first to hear that Jesus is Risen. True worship opened the door for resurrection glory. These true worshipers who pour out their lives for him will see his glory. They live for nothing else.
Then, Jesus appeared to Mary and said rejoice and go tell my brethren to come see me. In a world where so many are losing hope and giving up on God, there are still those who have not bowed to any other name but Jesus. Those who have been close to his heart and stayed at his feet will not be shaken through the tumultuous times we are living in.
They will wait in the midst of darkness like the women waiting at the tomb. And these are the ones who will stay in deep worship with their oil lamps full. In this season, they are waiting in the face of calamity, waiting for deliverance, waiting for this all to passover, and waiting for Jesus to come. They will worship and wait in the face of death to see their Lord and his glory revealed to them.
They will be the first to hear what Jesus is saying, and that is, rejoice. Then, they will run and tell the others, come and see Jesus. They will call people back to the feet of Jesus so that they too may truly see him. Amen.

Hello, dear @Christian_Topics,
What a truly beautiful words. Right now, when the Easter has just happened we have to remember the need of faith. It’s so essential and important for life, you can’t live without believes (even if there’re people in denial).
As Jesus said to his disciples, “believe to see”, that’s what faith is, Jesus loves us but he wants us to love him back. This is truly represented in these women who waited at the tomb, they believed and saw Jesus rise from the dead. If you think about it, they were the first and truly church. They were the first one to know about the Jesus triumph against the death. What a remarkable feeling that must have been.
Kind regards, Luis Guerrero
