Subject: February 11th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Now on the first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, while it was yet dark, unto the tomb, and seeth the stone taken away from the tomb. John 20.1.

Many there are who only know the preciousness of the Lord’s work and do not know the preciousness of the Lord himself. What makes Mary Magdalene different from other people is that she treasures the Saviour himself, not just the salvation she receives. Many people there are from whom demons are cast out, but one alone seeks after the Lord—even Mary Magdalene. Though other women also came to find the Lord, the first one who arrived at the tomb was Mary Magdalene. She came early on the first day of the week, while it was yet dark. She cared for nothing but finding the Lord. Well has one brother said this, that after the Lord Jesus died, the whole world in Mary’s eyes had become a vacuum! The whole world could not at all bewitch her heart, because one person alone had already captivated her. Her heart was fully possessed by the Lord.
