Question Answer Series [10]: Who will roll the stone away?


Question: Who will roll the stone away

Answer:“..they asked each other, Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” Mark 16:3

 After the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices to go and anoint the body of Jesus. Very early on Sunday morning, at sunrise, they went to the tomb. On the way, they said to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” (It was a very large stone.) Then they looked up and saw that the stone had already been rolled back.  So they entered the tomb, where they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe—and they were alarmed.

Praise the Lord, today May 3rd, I want to meditate on Mark 16:3, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, and all the loved ones were sitting and mourning and weeping. At that time, a few ladies went to the grave to anoint the body of Jesus; they had a huge question in front of them, who would roll the large stone in front of the grave? This obstruction did not stop them, we know they went, even before they reached angels rolled it away and Jesus came out of the grave. What are the stones that are obstructing us from meeting Jesus?

We might see some obstructions in our lives, that look so large. By faith go forward the Lord will roll it away. Angels were waiting in the tomb with the good news of resurrection; to listen to the great news let us walk towards the obstruction. Who will remove the stone is an irrelevant question (as our Lord will), the right action is to keep going and not quit.

Question have you quit in your pursuit to get closer to Jesus? I will not quit, I know the Lord will roll away all my obstructions. I will experience Jesus and the power of resurrection in my life.
