This is a poem I wrote about the resurrection of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know many people don't believe as I do. I wish they did but God will sort then out in the end. I'm not God. I'm just one of his mouthpieces. I hope you enjoy the poem.

The Resurrection

Mary arrived at the grave site early;
She had herbs to anoint the body with
The herbs would help slow down the decaying process;
However when she got there the body was gone.
A man met her there wearing white apparel
His clothes were so white they hurt your eyes to look upon them.
He said “The one you look for is Risen.
Look for Him among the living. Why seek the living among the dead?”

Mary was confused and did not understand.
She turned to walk away but decided to question the man farther as to what he meant.
When she turned around however he was gone.
In her excitement she didn’t give it a second thought.
She had to find her Master’s body!

She left the tomb and found the Gardener.
“Sir if you have taken Him please return Him”, she pleaded.

“Mary it is I”, Jesus spoke in a gentle voice
.
It was her Master alive and risen from the dead!
She fell to the ground to worship Him because now she understood that he was the Son of God,
He told her “Tell my disciples I go before you into Galilee.
There you will see me.”

Mary ran back to the disciples and reported what she seen and heard.
They thought she had lost her mind.
Peter and John ran to the tomb and found it empty
Having been told by Jesus before His death where to meet Him at after he rose,
They went to the appointed mountain top where they worshiped him but some doubted
