Jesus says to her, Mary. She, turning around, ...

Jesus says to her, Mary. She, turning around, says to Him in Hebrew, Rabboni, which means Teacher. Jesus says to her, Touch Me not, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, I ascend to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.
(John 20:16-17)

Her heart filled sorrowful desolation, Mary Magdalene seemed unable to comprehend the angels message that her Lord had risen from the dead. Because His body was not in the grave she turned away from the angels who were there. And when He himself drew near, she had no thought of expecting Him, but supposed Him to be the gardener; and from Him also she turned away.
One word from His lips changes everything, Mary. He calls His own ship by name, and she knows His voice. Here is the One whom she loves, alive before her eyes! What joy unspeakable fills her heart as she no doubt involuntarily plunges forward to grasp Him.
But He tells her, Touch Me not, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. No doubt she thought had Him back the same as before. On the basis of that relationship, however, she can no longer touch Him. His death has set that aside. He now announces to her a new relationship, and gives her the great honor of carrying the message of this to those to whom He calls My brethren. He was to ascend to My Father and your Father. For in resurrection, He is the head of a new creation in which God is now in a vital way Father to all who know His beloved Son. He was virtually telling Mary that, though He was all that she had on earth, yet now she was no longer to have even Him on earth; but she would have Him in heaven, in the Fathers own presence. All her hopes and her blessings were now to be centered there, together with all the brethren of the Lord.

Learn To Wait

‘My times are in Your hand…’Psalms 31:15 NKJV

The Psalm writes, ‘…I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand…’ (vv. 14-15 NKJV). As you walk with God you’ll find that you spend more time waiting than you do receiving. And when you receive what...More

The name you bear is very important because it serves as your identity and your future may be connected to it. The name a person bears is sometimes indicative of the experiences he or she will encounter in life. Take for instance Moses: this name means “drawn out of water” (Exodus 2:10). No wonder water was a...More

Look For Teaching Moments

‘What do these stones mean?’ Joshua 4:21 NIV

One of the most effective ways to teach is through ‘teaching moments’. Jesus did that. When a fig tree didn’t produce fruit, He cursed it and it immediately withered up. That got the disciples’ attention (see Matthew 21:18–22). Then He...More
