An Encounter

And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. Matthew 28:9

Imagine coming from an empty tomb and being told he is not there. To go back home and encounter the very one on the way, Who we just had gone to go to, in order to prepare his body. I most definitely would do the same as the women who met him. Kneel at his feet and hug the daylights out of him. Such happiness seeing him alive after he told us he would rise after death. To actually witness this, wow! Should I have been fearful, then it would have been my doubts that caused this. Just as the women were fearful. When they witnessed the torture Jesus underwent, it is only logical that they would doubt. It is with a great faith in the Divine to understand the truth of Jesus coming to life. They had this too. Can we have this great faith in our world. It is a hope.
