Wednesday Wallpaper: Why Are You Weeping?

Scriptures: John 20:14-18
by Jacob Abshire on April 23, 2014

Mary was troubled. After Mary Magdalene saw the empty tomb and concluded that Jesus’ body was stolen, an angel appeared to her asking, “Woman, why are you weeping?” Moments later, while investigating in the garden, Jesus (though a supposed gardener) asked her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” Mary was liberated from demons the first time she encountered Jesus. This time, weeping at His death, she was liberated from sin. Let this wallpaper remind you that those in Christ will be raised again with Him and are liberated from sin. There is no reason to weep.

Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.
