(KJV.) ST. MARK 16:9
(9) Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
Grace be unto you! My friends, it is never too late for anyone to repent, have salvation and eternal life, so far as Jesus is concerned; no matter how sinful we are, or have been in this world, if only, the man will come to him with his burdens, having the hearts of repentance, he will surely receive us unto himself, without condemnations transform our lives, use each and every one of us for his glorification on earth and hereafter in heavenly places.
Case in point, Mary Magdalene, was the rumored adulterous woman, who was allegedly taken in the act, brought to Jesus by persecutors, questioned Jesus about her sinful behavior, to perceive what he would do about it; what did Jesus do? Read the narrative of St. John 8:1-11 for detailed information; in carnality, this type of a person was not qualified, or holier enough to be the first to see Jesus on the day of his resurrection from the dead, however, Jesus appeared unto her first; for the ways of God are mysterious; the grace is, when Mary Magdalene was delivered from her waywardness, she followed Jesus Christ, became his disciple; though not too much was written of her role among Jesus disciples, she dedicated herself to the will of God; consequently, it was not questionable as to why Mary would be the first person to see Jesus after he resurrected from the dead; therefore, my friends, it is never too late for anyone to come to Jesus, no matter what we have done, do, will do, the past, present, future sins, are entirely forgiven through his sacred blood shed on the cross of Calvary; just come to him! There is, therefore, now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus... cf. Roman 8:1; also, let us not rule women out of ministry, this is an important factor that women are important in the ministry of Christ, as well as their opposite counterparts; for it is the spirit that quickens, the flesh profited nothing.... cf John 6:63; therefore, I encourage the women of ministries, rise up and shine your touch lights, Jesus recognizes you as his worthy disciples!
Beloved, Jesus Christ transformed the life of Saul the persecutor to Paul the apostle, used him mightily for his glory, cf. the book of Acts; therefore, what we did before we met Jesus, does not matter to him, what matters to him most is what will happen to our souls, after we sleep in death; therefore, it is a serious matter to consider while we still have the chance to do something about our lives; it is easier said than done, never procrastinate any longer, buying time, come to Jesus now, at the end of days, it is worth your time; come! Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
