Who Will Roll The Stone Away?

“Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, ‘Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?’” Mark 16:2-3.

How many of us have opened our eyes to the sunrise and immediately begin worrying about a problem that must be faced that day? A certain group of women did just this on Easter morning around 33 A.D. They awoke with pain in their hearts and a problem in their path. As an act of love and devotion their intentions were to anoint the body of their beloved Jesus with spices, much like our practice of taking flowers to a grave. The problem they faced was a huge stone that was rolled in front of the entrance of the tomb. Heartbroken in grief, don’t you know that they brainstormed through their tears every way imaginable of removing the stone? All of their calculations were worthless when they finally arrived at the opening, for God had already done the work and solved their problem. ‘But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered…they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side…’ Mark 16:4.

Today is Easter and resurrection in on my mind! Whatever circumstances you face this morning as you rise are being met with an opening with no stone…a problem where God has arrived before you have. We must enter in the opening of God’s grace where He is awaiting us to reveal the answers to our problems. We do not have to worry, calculate and wring our hands over how to solve our difficulties. If God can resurrect a man who was beaten, tortured and hung lifeless, He is powerful enough in resurrecting everything in our lives that seem to have lost its pulse. We must believe that no matter how heavy the stone God will provide the entrance to the opening that gives life.

Before we even have to ask, ‘Who will roll away our stone,’ He will already be there with the solution.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
