I Am Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene served in Jesus’ ministry following her deliverance from demonic possession and oppression (Luke 8:1-3). Mary gave her life in service to the one who gave her a new beginning. She witnessed Jesus’ death (Mark 15:40-41) and was the first to bear witness to Jesus’ resurrection (John 20:11-18).

5 Lessons from Mary Magdelene’s life

  1. The greatest way to express gratitude for all Jesus’ death and resurrection accomplished for us is to surrender our lives to Jesus daily. Like Mary Magdalene, we have been delivered from the power of darkness to serve our savior, Jesus Christ. Making the Word of God the final authority in our lives and homes is service and gratitude to God.
  2. Righteous living is one of the greatest form of warfare. After Mary Magdalene’s deliverance from demonic forces, she STAYED FREE by living for her deliverer, Jesus Christ. She became Jesus’ disciple, learning His ways and walking with Him. As we live for Jesus Christ daily, we host God’s presence in greater dimensions and stay free from demonic influence. Matthew 12:43-45 (NKJV) says, “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Don’t be found empty. Be found filled with the Word, Holy Spirit, and power.
  3. Mary Magdalene was the first person Jesus commissioned post-resurrection to share the good news of His resurrection. Jesus calls all, both men and women, to share the good news. Let’s celebrate women evangelists sharing the good news in and outside their homes.
  4. Mary Magdalene served Jesus with her finances (Luke 8:1-3; Mark 16:1). Cheerfully giving our finances to advance God’s kingdom proves we have truly surrendered ALL to Jesus. Like Mary, we can use our time and finances to serve God.
  5. Mary was delivered from so many troubles, and she did not forget what God did for her. We must not forget how God saved and delivered us from the power of darkness. Declare this scripture: Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:2-5 (NKJV)

  1. I agree we should strive to be filled with the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and be strong in our faith so we’re not empty vessels for evil. Such wise words!
