They were saying to one another, “Who will roll back the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back; it was very large. Mark 16:3-4
His death on the cross defeated sin. His resurrection defeated death. The stone is rolled back.
Our lives have wandered from the ways of God. We have plundered the freedom He has given. We have received much from Him but we have given less to Him. We have chosen and live for the night rather than the day. We have showered ourselves with ourselves. We tend to pretend we are on the right route but coupled to the wrong roots. We have separated ourselves from the One who is always by our side. We have rolled away from Him.
He is still constant as our lifestyle varies. He is still after us as we walk away. He still thinks of us as we have forgotten Him. He still longs for us as we run short. The faultless One consistently loves the flawed ones. He rolled towards us.
And when we are hopeless, He comes with hope. And when we are lifeless, He comes to give abundant life. We see the sun arise, yet we can’t come into the light thus the Light came to us. His illumination overcame the darkness of sin and death. He died and rose, we live and believe.
His death on the cross defeated sin. His resurrection defeated death. Our lives are rolled back.
