And Jesus said...
"Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
John 20:29 NKJV
How much more pain could Mary Magdalene's heart endure? She was lost; confused. Nothing made any sense - She didn't know where her Savior was and she needed to find Him.
When the others she had told came to see the empty tomb, they left perplexed and went home. But Mary Magdalene stayed at the tomb seeking to know where Jesus was.
I can only imagine the joy that filled her heart when she heard Jesus call her name -
She knew His voice; He was alive!
She must have thought of that day in the garden many times through out her life time-
She must have shared the experience with others as well. Did it matter if they believed her? Did it matter what they said? No, nothing could change what Mary Magdalene knew.
The "Truth" she experienced in the garden that day by the tomb would live in her heart forever; Jesus was alive!
The "Life" she experienced from that day forward, living each day spiritually connected with her Savior, would sustain her. It didn't matter that she couldn't physically walk with her dearest friend; He lived in her heart. She knew all the things Jesus had said were true; He had promised He would never leave or forsake her. Every day for the rest of her life she knew His promise was true; He was with her.
There was no doubt in her mind now; she knew the "Way". Deep down in her heart she knew Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God. She remembered His promise, "Where I am, there you may be also." She knew someday she would see her Savior again, face to face. His death made the way, His resurrection opened the door for anyone who believed. She knew now, not even death could separate her from the Savior, Christ Jesus.
