the women who stayed


December 2015 (17)Mark 15:40-41

40 There were also women watching it from a distance, among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James (the younger one) and of Joses, and Salome. 41 When he had been in Galilee, they had followed him and took care of him, and there were also many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem.

the women who stayed

Salome and the two Marys were part of a larger group of women who had been followers of Jesus. They had probably listened to his teaching, and witnessed some of his miracles. Now they had witnessed his execution. No doubt they were filled with confusion and fear. The apostles had scattered, but these women remained watching from a distance. Still, they were there, and from that group would emerge the first witnesses to his resurrection.

LORD, give us the loyalty to stay with you in the times when all others fall away.
