Luke — These Most Important Words!

Day 3205: Back to the last chapter of Luke as I reposted James while gone throughout October!!!!

Scripture: 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 24:6-8

Thoughts/questions: The three words, I love you, probably rank 2nd only to the impact of the three word phrase which is surely first – He has risen! Our finite minds can’t get a grip on the infinite, and also cannot totally appreciate the implications of Jesus conquering the grave.

The disciples didn’t really comprehend Jesus’ words either, but when what He spoke about actually happened, their eyes were opened. For us, I think we will have a similar experience. We will rise from the grave as well, and what we’ll probably remember is not really recognizing the gravitas of these words, HE HAS RISEN!!!

The end is NOT in sight because there is NO end . . .  We WILL also rise because He rose! The death of those close to us is merely a BEGINNING, and we will see them AGAIN! At that point our eyes will also be opened to the tremendous importance of ‘He has risen’ and we will rejoice as no other time in our lives.

Today, we remind ourselves of the words; however, may these three words reach deep down into your heart, soul, and mind and may you begin rejoicing!

Suggested Prayer: Dear Jesus, You have made the way for me, and for that I truly will be forever grateful . . .
