Touch Me Not

John 20:17 KJV

17. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and Your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Now I am what we call a senior citizen and have heard ministers teach that a woman should not preach or be a teacher.  And to my surprise I have found that there are still people that believe that.  What a shame. For it was this same Mary that found Jesus tomb empty and reported it to the disciples.  And as we just read it was this same Mary that first to see Jesus.

Now we have read that the disciples were with Jesus during His earthly ministry and He taught them, and even told them what was coming. And after Christ died on the cross, all they did was go back to their home.

It was Mary that went to the sepulcher and found it empty, and she was the one that told the disciples what she had found.  And it was Mary that first saw Jesus heard Jesus say that He has not yet ascended to His Father.

Lets take some things into account.  First it was Judas, a disciple that betrayed Jesus.  Second it was Peter that denied knowing Jesus three times. It was Mary that showed her love for Christ.  She went to the sepulcher because she loved Him.  After the disciple did go to the sepulcher and saw that what Mary said was true, they didn't stay, but went back home.  Where Mary stayed.

John 20:11-13 KJV

11. But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as he wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulcher,

12. And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13. And they say unto her, Oman, why weepst thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

So what we have here is that the men stayed home, where on the other hand a woman, who loved the Lord went to His sepulcher and by so doing it was a woman that told the men that the Lord was not there.  It was a woman that stayed after the men had left, that looked into the sepulcher and saw the angels, then saw the Lord before He had ascended up to His Father.

So I have learned listen to people talk about the Lord, but it is better to see how they walk the talk. Now I am not saying that the disciples didn't love the Lord, because I believe they did. But it took a woman to show how to walk in the Lord.  It was this Mary, to show us how we should walk.  For by her actions she showed true love for the Lord.

People have to take into consideration that Jesus earthly mother played a important part in have the Lord come to us.  For she gave birth to the Lord. So without a woman we could not have the benefits that the Lord has given us for us that believe.

Now Jesus told Mary not to touch me, but He didn't say to be quiet.  He told her to proclaim that He has arisen and His on His way to be with His Father. And that's what this woman Mary did. She instructed the men that the Lord our Savior Jesus Christ had arose. 

God Bless 
Have a good day,
John T. Begin
