“Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb.” (Matthew 28:1, NLT)

“It isn’t hope that leads [Mary and Mary Magdalene] up the mountain to the tomb. It is duty. Naked devotion. They expect nothing in return. What could Jesus give? What could a dead man offer? The two women are not climbing the mountain to receive, they are going to the tomb to give. Period.

There in no motivation more noble …

Service prompted by duty. This is the call of discipleship.
