The Gospels through the Summer, Day 67
Do we ask God to remember us? Read Luke 23.
As we come to the final chapters of the book of Luke, we see the crucifixion story again. Here in this verse, we see the criminal on the cross next to Jesus asking that Jesus remember him.
Jesus knows us, better than we know ourselves and yet, coming to Christ and asking that he remember us and take special note of us shows him the respect that he deserves. It also shows that we are ready for him to move. God wants to move and work in our lives in amazing ways. When we ask him to remember us, we show him that we’re ready for whatever he wants to bring to our life. God won’t move in our lives until we are ready for him to move.
