Daily Fountain 2017 - Go And Tell






Monday April 17

Bible Reading:     Mark. 16: 1 - 13

Topic:         Go And Tell

Mary Magdalene, Mary and Salome had had a difficult week.

They had watched their Master and Teacher tortured, humiliated and hung on the Cross and finally buried.

Very early on the first day of the week, these women left for the tomb with spices they had bought to anoint the Body of Jesus - as a sign of love, devotion and respect - just like bringing flowers to a grave today.

They met an empty tomb and an Angel in a white robe who announced that Jesus was alive. "He has risen!"

Jesus kept His promise to rise from the dead and this gives us assurance that we too will be resurrected. It also guarantees that He would keep His other promises to us.

The Power that brought Jesus back to life is available to bring our morally and physically dead selves back to life.

Peter was specifically mentioned to show that in spite of denying Jesus, he had been forgiven and reinstated for the great responsibility the yet to be born Church.

As the Angel commissioned the women to "Go and tell" we too have been entrusted with the wonderful news of salvation in, "go to those who have not experienced the resurrection story, Go and Tell!"

Prayer:

Lord, empower me with boldness to tell the world about You, Amen

Memory verse:   Mark. 16 : 13

"But go your way, tell His Disciples and Peter that He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him as He said unto you"
