Remembering Jesus' Words


"Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. The Lord turned and look straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him...'before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.' He went outside and wept bitterly" (Lk.22:61-62).

After he remembered the words Jesus had spoken to him, Peter realized what he had done and cried... If that were the entire story, Peter would have been a abject failure. The great thing is that Peter remembered many of the other words that Jesus had spoken and became the great stalwart for the Lord he was supposed to become. We would do well to follow the footsteps of Peter (not the denial part) and remember Jesus' words. He was the greatest teacher that ever lived, and his words echo through the corridors of time. On the third day following the crucifixion, women took spices to anoint Jesus' body. But when they got there, the stone was rolled away and the body missing. The two men (angels) told them: "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified, and on the third day be raised..." (Lk.24:7). The women's response? "And then they remembered His words..." (V 8). We also must remember His words, and when we do they will constrain us to obey, serve, give, fellowship and worship. Lastly, there are these words of Jesus that we must remember: "He who rejects me and does not receive My sayings (remember them) has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day" (Jn.12:48). Jesus is quite clear that we will be judged upon our adherence to His Word... It is so important for us to dwell on Jesus' words, but also these coming from Peter: "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life" (Jn.6:68).

Have a wonderful day... Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
