“Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” Matthew 28:10 NIV
The women had gone to the tomb looking for Jesus and had instead found an angel of the Lord. He told them to “Go and tell” the others that Jesus was not at the tomb, He had risen and He was going to meet up with them.
On their way to do as instructed, Jesus met up with them. He affirmed them and they responded with worship.
And Jesus repeated the instructions, “Go and tell“.
The women when they saw Jesus, they fell at His feet, hugged His feet and worshipped. You would think that Jesus would have lingered there allowing them to express their love to Him. And yet, He loved on them by reassuring them to not be afraid and reiterating the instructions they had received, “Go and tell”.
Have you ever been met with a ‘suddenly’ of Jesus and have become undone in His Presence ? When was the last time you just wanted to linger there, in His presence? When was the last time you’ve wanted to express your love to Him by just lying there on your knees, on your face? Or face lifted up, lost in His presence?
And He says, “Go and tell”.
There will be a time when we will be face to face with our Creator, in the presence of Our Lord, totally immersed in the Holy Spirit! There will be a time when we will bow before Him and worship Him eternally in song and praises. Revelation 5:13
Today, our worship to Him is to do His will!
“Go and tell”.
Will you streamline your schedule, align your finances, strengthen your relationships, to “Go and tell”?
Heavenly Father, I worship you! I lay my life before you! You are worthy to receive honor and praise! I want to worship you through song and dance! I want to clasp my arms around your feet and worship.
I thank you because you love me and you also love the world. And you have made me a light to the lost that I may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.
Lord, help me to answer the call. I want to answer the call. Send me, Lord. Holy Spirit use me to bring the good news of the Kingdom to those around me.
Give me the courage and desire to obey you and go and tell!
