Week 13 Devo – TUESDAY


Neither angels nor an empty tomb were enough for Mary. She still assumed that Jesus’ body had been stolen (John 20:2,13). She wanted to be near her Savior, but did not know where His body lay. She was committed to Jesus, and His death brought her to despair.

We are like Mary in a lot of ways, and this instance was no exception. Just as she was failing to live in light of Jesus’ resurrection, so often we fail to live as if Jesus has truly risen. We don’t walk in hope, but in defeat. Rather than look down in despair, we need to listen for the voice of our living Savior in Scripture.

What steps can you take this week to allow the reality of Jesus’ resurrection to affect the way you live each day?
