We get a mental picture of those faithful women as they traveled toward the tomb where Joseph and Nicodemus had hurriedly placed the body of Jesus on the day of the crucifixion. They were filled with fear and questions as to who should roll away the stone from the door of the tomb.

No doubt their approach was gloomy, but they did have a secret, inner hope, though their faith was timid.
Great faith did not make Easter possible. God’s great love did.
