Christ Will Not Be Forgotten 

The leaders saw that Jesus was attracting a large following. They did not know His true intentions. One thing was clear: to them, it was imperative that His influence must come to an end. The leaders just wanted to silence Jesus and add Him to the list of those who had been forgotten. At the cross they thought their strategy had worked. He had been abandoned by His friends. Few had been brave enough to attend His crucifixion. Soon, Jesus would be forgotten.

The leaders were shocked to learn that His body had disappeared from the tomb where He had been buried. Hallelujah! They developed a strategy to minimise any further disruption or attraction. They paid the soldiers who had watched His tomb to spread the rumour that His disciples had stolen His body. The rumour spread, but His followers learned the truth: He indeed had risen from the dead. Every effort to silence Him had failed, and He could not be forgotten.

Today, this story reminds us that God remembers. All the world may fade away. Our actions may be forgotten. We may be overlooked and taken for granted. But He knows everything. He knows when we have been faithful, and He keeps His Word. His plans are sure and He cannot be stopped by armies or governments, no matter how powerful. You can rejoice that God fulfils every promise. He rewards faithful servants who are good stewards of the resources they have been given and He never forgets!

“Some of the guards … reported to the chief priests all that had happened … they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, and said, ‘You are to say, “His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep.” (Matthew 28:11-13 NASB).

Let’s Pray

Emanuel, thank You for going through hell just for me. Father, help me to be a faithful follower of Christ, regardless of what others may say, or how unfashionable it is. God, my desire is to please and serve You till death. I pledge today to never allow You to be forgotten in this sinful life, in Jesus’ name! Amen.
