The Stone is Rolled Away!
You know the feeling. The one you get when you just can’t wait to experience something amazing! The only problem is, when you arrive it is no longer there. What a spectrum of emotion, right!? Anticipation and excitement to disappointment and fear.
This is what Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome experienced when they journeyed to the tomb where Jesus has been placed after He was crucified. They made the journey to arrive early to anoint him with oils and herbs. During the walk, they pondered how in the world they would get access to Jesus because of the stone. It was big and heavy. But they went anyway, in faith, believing that they would get access to the Savior. When they arrived they were both amazed and stricken with horror to find the stone was already rolled aside and Jesus body was gone!
