Wednesday, April 6 — Psalm 45:1–9
Exodus 40:24–Leviticus 1:17; Mark 1:1–8
The Lord has sent me to comfort all who mourn. Isaiah 61:1,2
When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. Mark 16:9–10 (NIV)
God, the grief you must have endured in Jesus’ torment and death! Secure in the knowledge that Jesus defeated death once and for all, we turn to you in our times of sorrow to find comfort in your arms. Heal our pain. Amen.
