Scripture:
“‘He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Then they remembered his words.” ~Luke 24:5-8

Observation:
Arriving at the tomb, the women are expecting to finishing preparing Jesus’ body for burial. Instead, they find an empty tomb and get a reminder from some angels. Part of what’s interesting here is that the angels remind the women what Jesus had previously told them. They’d forgotten. They spent most of their lives with Jesus for several years, and they didn’t remember.

Application:
Sometimes I forget Jesus’ words too. I can’t be too hard on the women. I think this is one of the great things about this Bible reading project; it reminds me of Jesus’ words. Words that I’ve heard before but seem to forget in the moment.

Prayer:
God, use Your book to remind me of the things I need to be reminded of. As I’m faithful in this discipline, please let Jesus’ words stay with me when I need them.
