Revelation

Mary Magdalene had changed from a woman possessed to a woman who had given herself fully to God as a Christ-follower.  This transition wasn’t overnight although some of its biggest changes were.  When God Mends us through Jesus we can see some changes quickly and others slowly.  Whether quick or slow, she would now be given the opportunity to be the first to see the Risen Lord and hear His voice.  No matter how Marred you were or are, when Jesus Mends you then your life can turn to amazing!
