50 Day Journey of Joy – Victory

Week 7 Sunday, April 4th, 2021

Read John 20:11-18 NLT

11 Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept, she stooped and looked in.

12 She saw two white-robed angels, one sitting at the head and the other at the foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying.

13 “Dear woman, why are you crying?” the angels asked her. “Because they have taken away my Lord,” she replied, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”

14 She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him.

15 “Dear woman, why are you crying?” Jesus asked her. “Who are you looking for?” She thought he was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him.”

16 “Mary!” Jesus said. She turned to him and cried out, “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher”).

17 “Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

18 Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!” Then she gave them his message.

Questions for Meditation

  1. Who did Mary see at the tomb? How did she know that it was Jesus?
  2. Hear the resurrected Christ speaking your name. Turn to Him and cry out to Him that He is your teacher. Tell others that you know that Jesus is alive.


Thank Jesus for coming to you and calling you by name. Rejoice in His victory that is yours as well!
