August 17-Still a Record

Scripture Lesson: Mark 16:1-8

On this date in 1894 Jack Wadsworth of the National League’s Louisville club sets a record that still stands today by giving up twenty-eight singles in one game.

Today’s Scripture lesson is another record that still stands today. Of all the major religions of the world, only one can say that the tomb is empty. When the women went to the tomb that first Easter morning, they expected to finish putting the burial spices on the body of Jesus. Instead they saw the stone had been rolled away from the tomb and it was empty. Angels told them not to be alarmed they were not going to find Jesus in the tomb for He had risen. Death could not hold our Savior in the tomb. He lives today in heaven and one day he is going to come again to this world for his people! That is a record that will last until eternity comes!

1. How does it make you feel to know the tomb is still empty?

2. How do you think the women felt that first Easter morning?

3. How should we live to show the world the tomb is empty?

We cannot rest until everyone in this world has heard the tomb is still empty!
