>The Resurrection of Our Lord

“Now after the Sabbath,
toward the dawn of the first day of the week, 

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 
And behold, there was a great earthquake, 
for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven 
and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 
His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 
And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. 
But the angel said to the women, 
“Do not be afraid,
for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 
He is not here, 
for he has risen, 
as he said.
Come, see the place where he lay. 
Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, 
and behold, the is going before you to Galilee; 
there you will see him. See, I have told you.” 
So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, 
and ran to tell his disciples. 
And behold, Jesus met them and said, 
“Greetings!” 
And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 
Then Jesus said to them, 
“Do not be afraid; 
go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, 
and there they will see me.”” 
Mt 28: 1- 10 (ESV)
“That seems a strange mixture, fear and great joy, awe and delight, doubt and faith; yet the joy was greater than the fear. It was not joy and great fear, but “fear and great joy.” Have we never had that mixture -drops of grief, like April showers, and peace and joy, like sunlight from heaven, making a glorious rainbow reminding us of God’s covenant of peace?.

A holy fear, mingled with great joy, is one of the sweetest compound we can bring to God’s altar; such were the spices these holy women took away from Christ’s sepulcher. Fear and joy would both make them run to bring his disciples word. Either of these emotions gives speed to the feet; but when ‘fear and great joy’ are combined, running is the only pace that accords with the messengers’ feelings.”
Commentary on Matthew by C.H. Spurgeon
May our Lord revive our hearts today!
