How do you end a story that you don’t want to ever end? Happily ever after? No, better than that.
Zarley harmonizes Mark 16:20, John 20:30-31 and John 21:25 to conclude the gospels.
“Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not recorded in this book. If every one of them were written down, even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.”
There are three great reminders here for how we should respond to the Resurrection.
1. Go and Tell.
Tell everyone. When you’ve seen the resurrected Christ, you can’t help but tell others. Talk about Good News! Experience the power of God that accompanies the message of God.
2. Be Amazed.
We could fill the world with books about who Jesus was and is, what He said, what He did, and the world wouldn’t be able to contain it. Knowing the real Jesus is an inexhaustible pursuit, an uncontainable treasure. So keep seeking Him out. Be amazed as you learn something new about Jesus every day.
3. It’s all about Jesus.
The point of the gospels is believing in Jesus and having life in His name. Don’t read the gospels and miss the point. Put your faith in Christ, first for salvation, and then for everything else in life.
