On this day, when we pause to remember, and take not lightly the sacrifice of others, let us approach God’s Word with the same reverence, giving it the same weight as our losses, and keep in the forefront of our minds the things He tells us to remember:
“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth….” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
“Remember the wonders he has done….” (1 Chronicles 16:2)
“Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead….” (2 Timothy 2:8)
“Remember those earlier days after you had first received the light….” (Hebrews 10:32)
“Remember the height from which you have fallen!” (Revelation 2:5)
“Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent.” (Revelation 3:3)
“Remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.” (James 5:20)
“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.” (Hebrews 13:7)
“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.” (Exodus 20:8)
“Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, but whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” (2 Corinthians 9:6)
“Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” (Hebrews 13:3)
That’s what I’m remembering today.
What are you remembering?
Oh, and just in case you forgot, God never does:
“I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands….” (Isaiah 49:15-16)
