Mary Magdalene evidently loved her Lord very much.
She was not content to just walk away from the empty tomb, but peered in again and saw the angels in the tomb where Jesus should’ve been. It would seem the magnitutde of the event had overcome her. When Jesus approached her, she was facing the wrong way and did not recognise his name at first. Upon hearing her name though she was overjoyed. Her spiritual eyes were opened and she turned around and realised who was speaking to her.
Jesus then speaks on the family of God, that she is a child of God. Although makes a distinction in his relationship with God, as the eternal Son, and her status as an adopted heir.
He then tells her to tell the other adopted children of God about what he is going to do. At which she obeys immediately.
Do I love my Lord as much as Mary Magdalene? Do I suffer from moments of spiritual blindness?
