Matthew 28: 5-6
“The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.'”
“Fear not, for his resurrection shall be your consolation.” – Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
The quote by Matthew Henry above is so powerful and true! The angel in today’s verses was comforting the women and telling them not to fear! To console means to alleviate or lessen the grief, sorrow, or disappointment. Jesus’ resurrection meant there was hope! This was unlike any other death these women had experienced- there was no sting! Jesus was not gone forever. He hadn’t abandoned them. It was the exact opposite! He had pardoned them. Paved a way for them eternally!
I can not imagine what these two women felt, but as we look back in time at this moment, it is so powerful and filled to the brim with hope!
Hi, I'm Krystle! A mama to five little crazy, wild, FUN kids and have been married to my husband for 14 years! Wow, time flies 😉 I am a DIY enthusiast & I love to cook and bake. If you ask me over for any type of tea you have spoken directly to my heart! I love the ocean and sitting down to a good book is my favorite (unless I fall asleep 2 pages in like usual....I have 4 kids, remember?!). I love Jesus and hope that anything I write displays his unending & unconditional love toward me and YOU!
