They found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
There is a popular expression these days pertaining to an individual’s way of doing things. For example, if someone uses a lot of sugar in their coffee. If you were to say, “wow that’s a lot of sugar.” They would tell you, “That’s just how I roll.” If some one has a pattern of doing something the same way every time, and you ask why they do this, they will tell you, “Well that’s just how I roll.” Pay attention for it if you want to know how someone rolls.
Jesus had a very unique lifestyle. When Jesus would perform a miracle, give a lesson, serve others, and even give his own life he would tell us he does what his Father told him to do. Jesus always did what his Father told him to do. Jesus was Jesus, the Son of God, the King of Kings and that is how he rolled.
Jesus spoke in parables, and he spoke in the language of the people who were listening. Today he might just say, “That’s how I roll”. Let me share just a few scriptures with you on how Jesus was unique. Jesus is not just a King he is the King of Kings and more uniquely he is a Servant King. And that my friends is how the King of King rolls.
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Mark 1:35 NIV
Before doing anything else Jesus went to his Father for strength and instruction.
Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28 NIV
Jesus was the King of Kings never asking for glory always giving it to his Father. Jesus was always serving and teaching others.
Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. John 13:14 NIV
The King of Kings was feet. This is a servant’s job.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-4 NIV
Jesus knowing full well he was going to be beaten, tortured and put to death, Jesus comforted his friends.
“I pray for them.” John 17:9 NIV
Jesus knowing full well he was going to be beaten, tortured and put to death, Jesus prayed for his friends.
Jesus was never found to be selfish or self serving. Jesus was always giving to others, serving others, preparing others, healing others, comforting and praying for others. Jesus did everything for others. Jesus did what His Father sent him to do. Jesus even died for others. Jesus died for all. This is what his Father sent him to do and this is exactly what Jesus did. This is how Jesus rolled.
