The pastor was preaching on the resurrection, which is a good topic any day but a no-brainer on Easter. I had never stopped to think about why the stone was rolled away from the entrance.
“The stone was not rolled away so He could get out but so we could get in.”The preaching point was to motivate us to allow God to remove obstacles from our life so that we could live in victory. A good point.
What was obvious, but I had not thought about was that Jesus did not need to roll the stone away from the front of the tomb to escape. He was God. Later He appeared in a locked room to the disciples. The stone was removed to give us access and show that the tomb was empty.
Good job, pastor. You made me think.
