Mark 16

Mark 16. Just as

Mark 16:1-20


OVERVIEWThe angel told the women to tell the disciples to meet Jesus in Galilee, just as he previously said (Mark 14:28).

BIG IDEA: The resurrection of Jesus changes everything!

KEY VERSEMark 16:6–7 (Angel to women)
…but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body. Now go and tell his disciples, including Peter, that Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you before he died.”

Remember the power and reality of the resurrection. Don’t let it become common or lose sight of the world-changing miracle it was. Raising Jesus from the dead is assurance that you, too, will be resurrected when this life is over. I have all power—including control over death. My strength is available to you, and I have made you spiritually alive. Jesus’ resurrection changes everything. You are now able to live and love beyond the ordinary ways of this limited world. Everything is new again.

Jesus’ resurrection proves that I am a “just as” God. I fulfill my promises, just as I said. I will faithfully love you, just as I said. I will always provide for you, just as I said. I will never leave you, just as I said. I will give you power and strength, just as I said. Let me have your trust, and I will provide you with freedom, purpose, and joy, just as I said.

Think of a promise God has fulfilled in your life. Text someone today and tell them you are thankful for God’s faithfulness in this area.
