On the first day, Friday, Jesus died by crucifixion. Early on the third day, Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene went to find Him at the tomb. She found two angles and a person she thought was a gardener. The Gardener was Jesus. She recognized Him when He called her name. He chose to first reveal His risen Self to Mary, a woman previously demon possessed. Jesus knew, pursued, and called Mary by name. He knows, pursues, and calls you by name. Respond as Mary Magdalene did. Recognize Him when He calls you.
