Early in the morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, He has risen, just as He said. Luke 24:1-6
I love the role of women in Jesus’ life and this story. Ever present, faithful, serving, patient, hopeful, brave… the women have huge impact.
When you read the gospels, look at the way Jesus interacted with women…engaged with, honored, respected and loved them…and enjoy the wonder of being loved!
As we finish our journey through Lent 2105, let’s lean into the truths we learned, cherish the encounters with God that began to grow new life in us!
