And They Remembered His Words

I’d like to discuss a short piece of advice. Something that we all can learn from.

St. Luke, chapter 24, verse 8, reads in its entirety: “And they remembered his words.”

In the verses before this, “they” were described as “perplexed thereabout” and “afraid.” They were certainly grief-stricken too at the sudden change in their lives and overwhelmed by the events they had witnessed. Stress, chaos, and emptiness must have filled their souls.

Two men in shining garments reminded them of the words Jesus had spoken, and the very events that He had foretold.

And they remembered his words.

All it took was a recollection of the words of the Master.

And they remembered his words.

They returned to where the saints had gathered, and told them these things.

Remembering restored their courage and faith.

Remembering renewed their confidence.

As they talked, their words came across as idle tales to the others who had not yet remembered and connected the prophecy with what had transpired.

Treasure up His words, whether spoken by His Own voice, or by the voice of His servants. Study His words, and remember!

Then when the rain descend, and the floods come, and the winds blow, and beat upon your house; when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind; when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the sure foundation; the rock upon which ye are built! (see Matthew 7:24-27 and Helaman 5:12)

Our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, was also described by another name. St. John introduced him as “The Word” (see John 1:1).

And they remembered his words.
