1. Search for Joy - Mary was looking for Jesus and as long as she did not have assurance of the resurrection she was in sorrow.
2. Source of Joy - Mary was looking for Jesus. She knew He was the source of joy. Most people today are searching for joy but they do not know that Jesus is the only source.
3. Sharing Joy - Mary went to the disciples with the message of joy - Jesus is alive!
Joy is the acquisition and anticipation of good from God. If I will look at every issue in my life that brings sorrow, pain or loss through the truth of the resurrection, I will experience joy. Psalm 30:5 , “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
Walk with the Lord and find joy in the resurrected Christ!!!
