They ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshipped him
(Matthew 28:9; NLT).
May I run to you, as well,
And grasp your feet,
For you are here.
May I never let you go,
Worshipping with joy,
May I, too,
Tell all the world
About your perfect sacrifice,
And that you’re with us evermore, Lord God,
Beyond all price.

Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.
The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there” (Matthew 28: 5-10; NLT).
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20; NLT).
“My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).
