There was an urgency behind the message that the angels gave to the two Marys as they found Jesus' tomb quite empty: go quickly. They had just been told that Jesus was, indeed, alive and that they must share this good news with the disciples. The women followed the command for we read that they "departed quickly" to go tell the others. The same imperative given to the ladies by the angel applies to us even today. We are to go quickly, too, for we never know how much time we have to share about Jesus' resurrection with a person. The two Marys did not waste any time but went quickly to their task; we must do the same.
You are here: / / Go quickly (Matthew 28)
