John 20:11‑13  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping.  .  .  .  They say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord.
Mary Magdalene felt a great loss when Jesus was taken from her. Hers was not the loss merely of an acquaintance, or a friend, or the “master”. No, it was “my Lord.” Think about it! You may know Him as your Savior and believe in Him. But knowing Him as “my Lord” means much more. It means giving your life to Him, doing His will, not yours, and following close beside Him. Not because you have to or because Christians are supposed to but only because you want to.
