Put Yourself in the Easter Story

thought

 

You know the Easter story. Do any of the characters remind you of yourself?

 

 

  • The short-sighted religious leaders
  • The mockers – mean words came from their lips
  • The disciples who ran off when it got scary

A few years ago, I read the part of Mary Magdalene for the Easter cantata.

John 20:16 (NIV)
Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!”

I carefully considered what I would have done in Mary’s place. Had I been Mary, I would have fallen to my face in front of Christ. That made sense.

Except I couldn’t. I would be wearing a wireless mike. A fall amplified throughout the sanctuary would be a show-stopper. In all the wrong ways.

Option 2: Arms up, running toward Jesus, “My Lord!”BLESS THE LORD OH MY SOUL
