On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.” So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb. They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first; he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in. When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place. Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed. For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead.
The Disciple whom Jesus loved was the first to understand. He knew what had happened because he believed and understood all that Jesus had said. The others were slower to understand and they needed to see Jesus to believe. You have the word of God, the story of all that happened, all that Jesus said. Do you see and believe or do you need miracles?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your Son. In His holy name, I rejoice in your love, grace and mercy, Amen.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad, Alleluia!
