Let's Go Back to the Bible

They remembered His words

On Sunday morning, when the women arrived at Jesus’ tomb and found it empty, two angels (Luke 24:4) announced to them that Jesus was risen from the dead, “as He said” that He would (Matt. 28:6). “And they remembered His words,” for Jesus had taught His disciples, “The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again” (Luke 24:7-8). 

On Sunday morning, when we arrive at the first-day-of-the-week worship assembly, we also need to remember His words. We need to remember that we are gathering on the first day of the week to celebrate that it is “the third day” on which He would “rise again.” We need to remember that He was “delivered into the hands of sinful men,” in order to shed His blood to forgive us of our sins (Matt. 26:28).

Seeing the empty tomb must have changed their lives forever. His words must have resonated in their hearts for the rest of their lives. Does it have that same impact on us? Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance!”
