This was our week 3 from the email list!
I was thinking about how so many things in our past hold us back from ALL HE HAS FOR US!
Mary Magdalene was a woman possessed by not 1 but 7 demons. She was known as someone insane. It only took ONE touch from His love to set her free.
Luke 8:2 New International Version (NIV
2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out;
I wonder when she was worshiping Jesus, ministering to His needs and sharing His resurrection was she thinking: oh I can not be doing this! I had 7 demons so I am not qualified.
Oh BUT she was!! Jesus qualified her just like you and I. The first one to declare His resurrection was Mary Magdalene!
John 20:1-18 New International Version (NIV)
The Empty Tomb
20 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
Just like Mary Magdalene we have ALL been touched with Christ love! We have been set free from our own demons and issues. If we have issues remaining we know the ONE who will set us free!
Never give up! Never shut up from the truth! Never put up with the enemies lies!
Worship like Mary! Spread His love and resurrection power like Mary!
