Go and Tell
On Easter night he appeared to the Eleven and said, “Why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself!” (Luke 24:38–39). Then he “opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures” (Luke 24:45). This is how much the Lord loves his people. Despite our doubts and fears, he continues to open our minds and hearts and teach us his truth.
He came as an infant. He will come again as an invincible warrior. For now, not only at Easter but in every season of the year, the Lord’s calling is clear: “Go, tell.”
So, let’s go, beloved. Let’s go and let’s tell. We’re called to be joyful, hopeful, faithful. The world is looking for answers, and because of Jesus, we have them. Now he wants us to share them. You and I can be Easter women every day of the year, living in the freedom of his resurrection and singing out with all our hearts, “He lives! He lives!”
