Have We Forgotten?

‘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 24:7-8 (NIV)

Picture it… after the crucifixion, the women who had followed Jesus prepared spices to anoint His body. They waited for the Sabbath to pass, and early Sunday morning went to the tomb to anoint Him. They probably had not slept. Their hearts were broken and with all the commotion of the previous days, they forgot that Jesus had told them that He would resurrect. The last thing they were expecting was to find an empty tomb.

They had to experience the pain of thinking that someone had stolen their Master’s body and see two glowing angels to remember His words. It might seem difficult to some of us to think that the people who heard Jesus talking about His resurrection would forget about it, but they did. Church, as incredible as it might seem, we might be in the same boat as these women.

Of course, we have not forgotten that He resurrected, but we might have forgotten a few other things that Jesus said. With our busy lives and our daily struggles we might have forgotten that He told us that we are the light of the world (Mathew 5:14) and therefore need to shine His light on the lives of people who live in darkness.

We might have forgotten that He told us that we, His people, have authority over the enemy (Luke 10:19). If we have, it is time we remember it. Because now, more than ever the church needs to pray for and expect signs and wonders in our midst.

We might have forgotten that He told us that it is our responsibility to preach the gospel and make disciples. Jesus did not ask us to invite people to church, He asked us to train people to be the church.

We might have forgotten that He told us that He would come again. The fact that most of us do not think about His second coming does not change the fact that He indeed will return. Therefore, as much as we do our best to be socially, culturally and politically correct, I hope we also focus on being "biblically" correct.

My Family, I know most of us remember and live the words of Jesus, but for the few that do not, for those that have forgotten them… Let us pray that they remember them soon. The last thing we want is for them to remember Christ’s words after the rapture with the realization that they were left behind.
