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
Making friends for time and eternity!
