Do You Remember When…?
Repeatedly, we see the commands in Scripture to “remember” something. Often we are to remember the commands of God (Num. 15:39-40). Other times we are to remember what God has done for us (Deut. 5:15). Then God Himself remembers His covenant with us and all living creatures (Gen. 9:15) or chooses not to remember our sins anymore (Heb. 8:12). Jesus told His disciples to “remember Lot’s wife” (Luke 17:32) and in the Revelation, Jesus command the church at Ephesus to “remember therefore from where you have fallen” (Rev. 2:5). We see sinful man asking God to “remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (Luke 23:42) and the Lord asking us to “do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Cor. 11:24). And we are told not to “keep” the Sabbath as a command, but to “remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Ex. 20:8). Why? Because remembering who we are and what God has done for us will bring a desire to “keep” His command and make His day holy.
But did you know that one of the key prerequisites of true worship is the ability to remember who God is and what He has done for us? Remembrance brings past realities into the present. It makes yesterday alive today. And it gives us courage to face tomorrow, no matter what, come what may.
What Have You Forgotten?
Let me ask you a couple of questions:
• What do you forget in the dark that you remember in the light?
• What about the Lord’s Word and character do you fail to remember daily?
• Do you remember how has He shown Himself faithful to you?
• What do you remember? And what have you chosen to forget?
