- On Good Friday I went to the Angels game where they remembered the life of late Angels pitcher, Nick Adenhart. The memorials remain in the front of the stadium and the corner of the accident.
- On Easter I went to my brother’s brother-in-law’s house for dinner and family get together for Easter. We thought back together and recalled the egg hunt we did for the kids the previous year.
- Last weekend I went for a group ride with Linked Cycling (remembering to bring water!) and then on Sunday, remembered those who were killed 10 years ago at Columbine High School in Littleton, CO.
- This past week I remembered to call a customer since we forgot to make the correct settings on his products that I sold to him.
- On Saturday I remembered to get new tires for my truck because the tread is worn pretty low. I don’t want to have a blowout on the freeway.
- On Sunday I remembered to do this blog!
I bet if I vocalized these things to you, instead of putting them into print, you would not be able to remember all of them if I quizzed you on it. But I’m sure you could remember the things you’ve done over the course of the last few weeks. I’m also sure I wouldn’t be able to remember your list!
We need to remember. The best way to do so is to remind ourselves with a physical reminder. We so easily forget. Most of all we must remember our Savior’s expression of obedience and love. Jesus Christ died having paid the penalty for our sin. His blood was poured out and his hands and feet pierced. He wore a crown of thorns rather than one of gold. He was despised by men and crushed by the Father. He paid for my sins. And I forget that?! Yes, all to often I do.
It appears almost impossible that those who have been redeemed by the blood of the dying Lamb, and loved with an everlasting love by the eternal Son of God, should forget that gracious Saviour; but, if startling to the ear, it is, alas! too apparent to the eye to allow us to deny the crime. Forget Him who never forgot us! Forget Him who poured His blood forth for our sins! Forget Him who loved us even to the death! Can it be possible? Yes, it is not only possible, but conscience confesses that it is too sadly a fault with all of us,
“This do… often… in remembrance of Me.” 1 Corinthians 11:25
Remember and do not forget!
