Simply Jesus - Alive

Matthew 28

In the opening of this chapter we are greeted with the start of a new week, the start of a new day and the start of a new era. Today dispair gave way to hope and hurt gave way to joy.

In front many witnesses the stone covering Jesus tomb was removed and an angel announced that Jesus was alive and well. The message of hope went out that Jesus was to meet his followers on a mountain top in Galilee.

Some of them believed and some of them doubted. Some even doubted when they saw Jesus with their own eyes. But on a mountainside Jesus gave His followers their life mission.

V19 Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 20 Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you.

That is the essence of what Jesus wants us to do - Go tell! Tell everyone you meet about Jesus. Simple isn't it.

In v1 the ladies had little to tell by v 20 everything had changed. Go tell - Jesus is alive.
