He Called You by Name!
“Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?’ Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, ‘Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Mary.’ She turned and said to him in Aramaic,’Rabboni!’ (which means Teacher).” -John 20:15-16
After the death of Jesus, his followers were devastated. Mary Magdalene was no exception. As she stood weeping outside the tomb, Jesus approached her, but she did not recognize him. Isn’t it interesting that it was when Jesus said her NAME that she knew it was him? Ponder that... it is so beautiful. He loved Mary.
And he loves YOU - child of God!
Are you having a rough day? A discouraging week? Even months of lament? There are so many encouraging truths in the Scriptures, but perhaps none so precious as this one:
Jesus loves you and he called you by NAME.
“…The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.”
