Easter – Remembering

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 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 24:1-8 NIV)

This year, I am drawn to Luke’s account of the women going to Jesus’ grave, expecting to fully prepare His body for burial.  Instead, they are perplexed about His missing body.  Then the angels appeared and reminded them of Jesus’ words to them before He died.

And the angels’ proclamation said it all:

   “He is not here; He has risen!”

The ultimate freedom is where we choose to put our mind.

May we remember, today, on Easter Sunday, God’s love, provision, and salvation, and the hope that He offers us both now and for eternity.

May we remember every time we take communion together with other followers of Jesus.

May we remember when we go to work and fix meals and do laundry and run errands.

May He be our focus and where we choose to exercise our freedom of where we put our minds.

May we remember often, every day, throughout each day:

   “He is not here; He has risen!”
