Experiencing Christ

Knowing and Experiencing the Resurrected Christ

John 20:15 Jesus said to her, Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking? She, supposing that He was the gardener, said to Him, Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.
(16) Jesus said to her, Mary! She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, Rabboni! (which means Teacher). (18) Mary the Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, I have seen the Lord, and that He had said these things to her.

If we want to see something more of the Lord, we must have more fellowship with Him. Mary’s seeing the Lord was the best morning watch. In this morning watch, she met the Lord and the Lord met her; she prayed to the Lord and the Lord spoke to her; she fellowshipped with the Lord and the Lord gave His word and His revelation to her.
In this chapter, it is quite evident that there are three kinds of disciples. The first kind is represented by Mary, the second by Peter and John, and the third by the lazy ones. The lazy disciples had no revelation or discovery of the Lord’s resurrection. Peter and John had the discovery and the revelation but not the experience. Mary had the discovery, the revelation, and the experience. What is shown in this record is also true of Christians today.

This record reveals the accomplished fact of Christ’s resurrection, but the discovery of His resurrection still requires our seeking, and the experience of His resurrection demands even further seeking. We must first seek the Lord before we can discover His resurrection, and we must seek the Lord even more before we can experience His resurrection.
