Jesus said to them, “Fear not! Go tell my brothers to go away into Galilee, and there they will see me.” – Matthew 28:10
Those that were with Jesus at the Cross are the first to be witnesses of His resurrection. As they approach the tomb, and seeing the angel, they must have sensed they were before a great mystery. Perhaps such a sign (angel) was needed because who could have believed the truth of the Resurrection? It would seem too good to be possible!
As the truth began to sink in, they are in a sense commissioned to be the first evangelizers. To do so they had to come to grips with what they believed.
Their belief, however, was not enough. More was required of them, as they were asked share with others, to “Go tell” others the good news, with joy in their hearts!
Let us too, who have come to believe, imitate the first followers, that we too will believe – share – and rejoice.
May God bless you!
