Wayside Chapel Daily Devotional 15th January 2020

Post by keifa »


1/15 Matthew 28:9-10

9 And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."

It's hard to imagine the shock the disciples must have felt when they saw Jesus. If you had seen someone brutally murdered, put in a tomb, and then three days later turned around and saw that person alive and well, what would you think? The word translated "Greetings!" is most frequently translated "Rejoice!" While it was used as a greeting, it had extra significance when it came from a loved one who his family and friends thought was dead. That call to rejoice was not only for the two Marys, but for everyone that would receive Jesus' victory over death. Jesus took care of our biggest problem, death. Rejoice!

They took hold of Jesus' feet and worshiped Him. If they had any doubts before that He was worthy of worship, those doubts are gone now. The world did its worst and He is still victorious. What confidence that should give to us who follow Him!

Jesus gave the women one of the most common commands in Scripture: "Do not be afraid!" Next, He had a mission for them. They were to go and tell His brothers to go to Galilee. How significant that He would now call them brothers. The apostle Paul explains that those God foreknew He predestined to be conformed to the image of Jesus, so that Jesus might be the first among many brothers (Romans 8:29). God is our Father, and Jesus is our Brother. We were adopted into the family of God through the blood of Christ that justified us. Try to fathom that!

Consider: If Jesus is your big Brother, what do you have to fear?

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
