Mark 16:4 When They Looked

Mark 16:4 (KJV)
And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

All their questions were answered when they looked.  
Any objections, any obstacles were removed simply for the looking. 

Their question was not answered by any man, but by the Lord. They were not yet aware of this truth, but it was the truth. We do not need any of the answers men provide. What we need is that which God provides. 

If they had not gone to look, they might never have known
I see this so often in men and women today. All of their objections concerning 

  • The existence of God
  • The truthfulness of the Scriptures
  • The reality of the Gospel and 
  • The effectiveness of salvation 

would be answered if they would come to look. 

The purpose of the witness for Christ is not to convince the naysayer with our good answers. All we need to do is to urge them to come see for themselves.
