The Importance Of Remembering


"My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I will also ignore your children" (Hos.4:6).

How many times have you heard the term, "ignorance is no excuse?" People often go to that plea when they know that they have done something wrong and there's no other way out. Forgetting can often be disastrous. In Old Testament times, God provided His people with constant reminders of His presence in their lives. God said: "Therefore the Lord your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day..."(Deut.5:15). He gave them special feasts like Passover, Succoth and Pentecost as remembrance times... God wanted the people in those days to remember Him. Because those things did not work the way they should have, God did not give up on His desire for people to remember Him. As a demonstration of His love for us, He gave us Jesus! Jesus came to us with His own special set of ways to remember Him and His Father. His teachings were as "spot on" as any in the history of man, as He showed us how to live a worthy life. The crowning achievement, however, was His death and resurrection... When He presented us with the elements of the Lord's Supper, He capped it off by saying, "do this in remembrance of me..." (1 Cor.11:24-25). Each Sunday when we gather to worship, the songs, prayers, Communion, giving and lesson are designed to help us to remember. Remembering Jesus, especially His death, produces a greater and deeper gratitude, appreciation and devotion to the Son of God. The next few devotionals will deal with remembering...

Have a great day... T G I F...... Thank God I'm Forgiven.... Love mark Phil.4:11
