Scripture:   Mark 16:6   “Don’t be alarmed,” he said.  “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.  He has risen!  He is not here.  See the place where they laid him.  

7   But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him, just as he told you.’”  (NIV)

Observation:   The ladies came looking for a dead body in a sealed tomb.  They found an open tomb with a living messenger telling them that Jesus was alive!  They came prepared to anoint a dead body, but they were sent away with a message!  They were sent to remind Peter that Jesus would do just as Jesus had told Peter.  (Mark 14:28) 

Application:    How important it is for me to remember what Jesus has told me.  Sometimes I need Jesus to send people my way to remind me of what He has said to me.     

Prayer:   Lord, you know how quickly I can forget what you have said to me.  Thank you for the scriptures; thank you for the Holy Spirit; and thank you for people you use to remind me of what You have said!    Amen
