“Mary Magdalene stayed outside the tomb weeping.” John 20:11

When the other disciples returned home, Mary did not. Attached to her Lord and overcome by grief, Mary stayed weeping by the tomb. Unable to remember the scriptures or unaware of them in that moment, she was consumed by her feelings of loss and loneliness. The one who had saved her, who had made her new was now gone. And she left with this new life in Him, was alive in her skin but dead in her soul, dependent on Him for every breath of her life.

Have you heard of give up lust for Lent campaign?

The Law. Don’t do this, but do this instead. It’s a fascinating show of original sin when people think that the way to stop sinning or to overcome a struggle with sin, is to use more Law. As I read the headline if this article I was fairly certain that I wasn’t going to be getting the Gospel as the answer to such struggle with sin and temptation.
