On that first Sunday after Jesus was buried, Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother of James, and Salome went to Jesus’ tomb to anoint his body for proper burial. When they arrived they found that the tomb was open! Jesus had risen! With joy they left that tomb to go and tell his disciples. On the way the resurrected Lord met them and they bowed down and worshipped him!
It has become customary among Christians to gather in the quiet and early hours of Easter Sunday to celebrate the “Son rise” too. As the angel invited those ladies, we too have come to see the empty tomb, to worship our Risen Savior, and then to leave this place to go and tell others the good news, “He is risen, just as he said.”
