Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. – Matt 28:9

As they went to spread the Good News, Jesus met them! As we go out and proclaim the Gospel, Jesus will meet us! He will confirm our speech with signs, wonders and miracles following.

The implication of this verse is twofold. First, if you need an encounter with Jesus – if you need to meet Him – the way to make it happen is to go out and spread the Gospel! When you rush to tell other people the Good News that Jesus was raised from the dead and has conquered the grace, the resurrected Christ will meet you face to face.

Second, you never have to be afraid that if you boldly preach the Gospel, Jesus will fail to make Himself known. When we preach the Good News, Scripture promises that signs, miracles, and wonders will follow us!

“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” – Mk 16:17-18

Thank God we serve the risen Lord! Thank God He is always willing to meet us as we go out and do His work!


Father, thank You that You are always willing to meet me! Give me the boldness and confidence to go out and boldly proclaim the Good News – that You are raised from the dead – knowing that as I do, You will confirm my witness!
