Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.
Do you ever stop to think and forget to start again?
It seems as if the older I get to more I forget. I live by my to-do lists and handwritten notes. When I sit at a local coffee shop to read my Bible, I will always have an extra napkins on the table in order to capture quick thoughts that I don’t want to forget as I’m in the Word. It seems cheesy, but I’m the kinda guy that would go around with a string tied to my finger as a memory device.
Sadly, I’d probably forget why I have it on!!
In the Scriptures there are a number of things that we are told to remember. On this Memorial Weekend, I wanted to “remind” you of just a few.
1. Remember the Sabbath by keeping it holy (Exodus 20:8)
2. Remember the commands of the Lord that you may obey them (Numbers 15:39)
3. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt (or slaves to sin) and the Lord your God redeemed you (Deuteronomy 15:15)
4. Remember the wonders God has done (1 Chronicles 16:12)
5. Remember the deeds of the Lord and the miracles of long ago (Psalm 77:11)
6. Remember how fleeting is my life (Psalm 89:47)
7. Remember your Creator in the days of your youth (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
8. Remember if your brother has something against you…go and be reconciled (Matthew 5:23)
9. Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously (2 Corinthians 9:6)
10. Remember the poor (Galatians 2:10)
11. Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead (2 Timothy 2:8)
12. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners (Hebrews 13:3)
13. Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you (Hebrews 13:7)
14. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do what you did at first (Revelation 2:5)
