God loves surprises. He appears in the strangest of places and does the strangest of things. He arches rainbows in the midst of thunderclouds. And he calls people by name in a cemetery. Mary Magdalene was surprised to hear her name spoken by a man she had buried. And she responded correctly— she worshiped him.
The scene has all the elements of a surprise party. But the celebration planned for the future will be a lot bigger! More graves will open. Many more names will be called. Many more knees will bow. And many more seekers will celebrate. I plan to make sure my name is on that guest list. How about you?
