For those who were in our first service for Easter and were unable to see the special video, this devotional is especially for you!
John 20:1-4 NLT
Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 2 She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 3 Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb. 4 They were both running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.
The stone wasn’t rolled away to let Jesus out, but to let the disciples in. The stone was rolled away so they could see the empty tomb. So the world could understand the great power of Jesus!
