As we get ready for Easter in a few weeks, we’ll look at some people not usually connected with Jesus’ resurrection. You know, people in the background, unseen, unknown. People with a past, ignored by the church, but longing to meet the “real” God. And, boy, do they.

April 7 - Broken - Mark 14:3-9
Jesus knows he’s about to die. The disciples? Clueless as always, even though the Messiah has given them all the clues. They should be helping him get ready for the event, instead it takes a woman breaking a jar over Jesus’ head. What she really had that was broken was her heart, but He took care of that for her. Maybe this Easter you’ll let Him do the same for you.

April 14 - Naked - Mark 14:51-52
Ever had a moment when you realize you’re in the wrong crowd? Even worse, they realize you’re a Christian, a follower of Jesus, and that doesn’t work for them. Suddenly, you’re exposed; what do you do? Run, baby, run!

April 21 - Obvious - Mark 16:1-8
Mary Magdalene, you know. Or have at least heard of. Mary of Salome? Who? Good question. Not much is known about her, but she followed Jesus. She and Mary head to the tomb of Jesus, only to ask the obvious: who will roll the stone away? Do you have an unmovable stone in your life keeping you from seeing Jesus? Good news! He can move it for you.

April 28 - Walking - Mark 16:12-14
One thing we know about Jesus; He loves to interrupt our day, especially when we’re just going about our day. Two unnamed men get the surprise of their lives, and their reaction? Kinda like ours; we’re not really sure that was Him speaking to us. So, how do we know?
