Re:Verse reading–Luke 24:1-12, 33-49 (day one)
“Two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing. . .’Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee?’ “–v 4-5
It was a mild rebuke, an expression of the amazement and frustration angels often have with us. Why don’t humans listen to Christ? Why don’t we trust Him? These angels remembered exactly where Jesus was when He said the words. How could the disciples have missed it?
The Bible speaks often of the careful attention angels give humans. “We have become a spectacle to the world, and to angels, and to men.”–1 Corinthians 4:9. Part of God’s purpose in the church is to demonstrate His wisdom to “principalities and powers in heavenly places.“–Ephesians 3:10.
It is one more reason for me to be brave. At all moments, all choices and opportunities, angels are watching.
