Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid. Mark 16:8
We believe these to be the last words of Mark’s gospel. It seems like a lousy thought to end with, but I appreciate it. They, like me, don’t always have the right attitude or the proper perspective. But this story is not about us. It is about Jesus. Whatever they felt; Jesus was (and still is) alive! Do you get it? I might feel as if God has forgotten me, but the truth is that he is right here providing for and protecting me. I might feel as if the world is falling apart, but Jesus is still here holding things together. Praise God! Truth is not determined by my faith—but by the one who created all things and sacrificed his life to save all people. Praise God!
