“So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.”” (2 Peter 1:12)
They laughed quietly as they talked…no doubt to ease the pain of saying goodbye to one they loved. It was a gently passing for one journeying-on to meet her Savior after 94 years of the joy and sorrows of life. They reminded one-another of days gone by, the things she said and did that made her so special.
We are all called to ‘remind one-another’ to repeat the stories, to capture the essence of days gone by and the importance of things that are true and lasting.
As they walked together along the shoreline of the Sea of Galilee Peter heard from the Master the manner of his death, he knew he would soon be leaving. He so desperately wanted to remind the disciples; to urge them to refresh their memories of ‘when they saw Jesus’. He said, “I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.” Then Peter told the story yet again…”but we were eye witnesses of his majesty…when we were with him on the sacred mountain.”
Disciple of Christ are you making every effort to see to it that those you love remember the stories of the time you saw Jesus—Life is such a vapor, a wisp of fleeting time, no grasp of man can hold it or change its course so true but tell the old, old story the one you know so well how Jesus came from Glory in your heart to dwell.
