Passage: Luke 24:1~12  

Keyverse: 6

1. The women hear the good news (1-8)

Not remembering Jesus' prophecy of his resurrection, the women went to anoint Jesus' body as soon as the Sabbath was over. But they didn't find Jesus' body. By calling him "Lord Jesus," the author reminds us that Jesus is now the Risen Lord. Then bright angels appeared and delivered the good news of Jesus' resurrection, reminding them of Jesus' words.

2. The women testify (9-12)

The women became the first resurrection witnesses, telling the other disciples. However, no one believed them. They had also failed to hold on to Jesus' words. But Peter went to investigate for himself, and he verified the empty tomb and the linen burial cloths that were left in it.

Prayer: Lord, help me to remember Jesus' words and never despair, because I always have resurrection hope.

One Word: Resurrection hope!
