Chapter Two – Mary Magdalene: Everyone Has a Story

At salvation, the Christian begins his new life in Christ. The devil loses another soul to Heaven but attempts to thwart the new Christian’s living for God. Mary Magdalene did whatever it took, starting at the moment she was freed from bondage to follow Jesus. Her testimony was one of hopelessness in sin transformed into dedication to Christ. While the world may have dismissed her potential, her refusal to let anything stand in her way of following Jesus is remarkable.

In this chapter of Standing Near the Cross, we study Mary Magdalene’s journey from an outcast of society to a testimony of grace. While she had a past life of sin, she never let that fact cloud her focus on being faithful. Her transformation will inspire readers to relive the miracle of their own salvations. They will be motivated to compare their own dedication to the cause of Christ against the dedication of Mary Magdalene, who once possessed by devils became obsessed with serving the Lord.
