Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” John 20:16
Mary came to the tomb of Jesus very early and saw that the tomb was open; all the soldiers had run away seeing Jesus risen up. Mary ran to disciples and told what happened. Peter and John ran to the tomb and saw the empty tomb, but they went back. “But Mary stood outside the tomb crying” John 20:11 She went back and stayed back although she did not understand.
Do you give up easily when you do not get an answer immediately? Mary saw the angels first, they told Jesus has risen up, still she stayed at the tomb and kept weeping, then Jesus himself came and consoled her, thus she became the first person to see the risen savior. If you are desperate like Mary to see Jesus, you will see Him. Jesus met Mary before even going to the Father.
Prayer: Lord, help me to pray patiently, never to give up. Anoint me with persistence. Amen
