Daily Gospel Devotional: December 14

Matthew 28:8-10…

Good morning Jesus…

So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. These women were excited. They saw the angelic evidence, and heard the angelic announcement. Now they were obeying the angelic exhortation.

And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" Mary Magdalene had met with Jesus on the way, and now it was their turn. Their response to this revelation was like Mary’s. And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. They didn’t want to let go.

Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me." Jesus’ response to the women was like what He said to Mary. He confirms the message given by the angel at the tomb.

Often in our most intimate, joyful moments with God, we wish that we could just stay right where we are and never leave (cf. Matthew 17:2-4). But the truth is that we must have faith, we must move on from one scene to the next, trusting that Jesus is sending us to deliver the message. No matter how incredible and intense a worship experience is, there will come a time when that worship leads to work and witness. We can’t just continue to soak up without being sent out.

After all, we are not called to be monks, but missionaries.

.... But I don't want to work! Sitting at Jesus feet and soaking up His essence is so much more enjoyable.

Working for Him is very rewarding when we have the right perspective.

Lead on oh King Eternal!
