â€śI have a good news for you. I met Rabbi today. He is alive.â€ť She could not hold her breath.
We all were stunned to hear this news. Somebody silenced her for the fear of soldiers, whom we could hear walking past our door. I was set aback in my world of thoughts and I remembered our Lord telling us that He would die and come back to life after three days. Then His blood stained back came in front of my eyes and I saw Him fall to knees when the wooden block fell to the ground. Oh, how badly I had dismayed Him!
â€śMother, your son is alive,â€ť She cried again to His mother, who could not control her sobbing. She was curious to know more and cried to me, â€śTake me to my son. Take me to my son, now. I want to see my baby.â€ť I stood motionless. My mother took her to the other room.
I could not eat my bread in the noon, and so couldnâ€™t John. We talked about what Rabboni had told us to do. We two along with other brothers sat in a circle. Our hearts were perplexed and the storm raged through our hearts. We were curious to know what would happen next. Would they kill Him again? Would they catch us this time? When would we see Him again? Why has He left us alone? So many questions, but found no answer. Sometimes you just need to wait and watch.
We continued praying and it was dark. Suddenly a bright light showed in the room. I felt faint in my soul and I could hear my heart throb. And then the words came, â€śPeace be unto you.â€ť He was our Lord, Jesus Christ, our savior. He was real as any flesh and bright as a sun. His wounds were so true and His love so pure. I could not hold myself but run to His feet and I felt His hand touch my shoulder as I stood back to wipe my tears.
Oh, what a peace He gave to our troubled heart! Nothing and nowhere in the world to find such a gift to quench the thirst of our questioning heartâ€¦
It was so wonderful to spend time with Him again, exchanging thoughts with Him. It indeed was the first time ever to experience such a joy and shalom in His presence.
Peace be unto all who read and all those who donâ€™t read.
18Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
19Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
