9. Affection of Christ

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned toward him and cried out, "Rabboni!" (John 20:16)The voice was too familiar to be mistaken! Mary loved Jesus more than any of his other disciples because none of them experienced 'salvation' in the way she experienced it, when he saved her from the mob that wanted to stone her to death. Now that her Saviour was dead, she wanted to accord him a proper burial by embalming his body with spices, in accordance with the custom but had to wait for the Sabbath to get over. 'Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, she went to the tomb and saw that the stone was removed.' She hurried to tell his other disciples and they came and saw for themselves. 'Then the disciples went back to their homes but Mary stood outside the tomb crying.' In the face of that love, Jesus, the High priest of the new covenant, wouldn't enter heaven with his own blood (Hebrews 9:12) without first appearing to Mary, because Love mattered more to him than the rule book! It says that the high priest must not be touched but then love doesn't defile! "Do not hold on to me for I have not yet returned to the Father."( 20:17) Her love for her Saviour has become the epitome (a person or thing that is a perfect example of a particular quality or type) of human gratitude but the world cannot understand the beauty of this undying love! 'Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus with an undying love.'(Ephesians 6:24) Amen
