Proclaiming Disciples
John 20:18a, 20b, 25a

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, ‘I have seen the Lord,’ . . . The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord. . . . So the other disciples were saying to him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’” John 20:18a, 20b, 25a NASB

The crowd that had yearned to be saved from their oppression had turned into a dangerous mob that screamed for blood. Christ had been crucified, shedding His precious blood to save those who would trust in Him. Jesus died on that cross and was buried in a rocky grave. The sorrow and grief His disciples had felt suddenly turned into great joy for Christ was alive! Risen from the grave! They saw Him! He spoke to them! Rejoicing they proclaimed, “We have seen the Lord!”

Lord Jesus, through the eyes of my spirit, I too proclaim, “I have seen the Risen Lord!”
