Today’s scripture: 2 Peter 3:1-2
Throughout the Bible, God’s people are encouraged to remember. How God guided
Abraham and named him the father of His own people. How, even through
incredible adversity, Joseph was the key to saving countless people. How the
Israelites were saved from slavery, walked through the Red Sea on dry land, and
were fed each day.
We too are encouraged to remember. “Do this in remembrance of me,” Jesus said
as He broke bread with His disciples (Luke 22:19). “He is not here, but
He is risen! Remember how He spoke to you …” (Luke 24:6). We must “…
remember the words of the Lord Jesus …” (Acts 20:35).
Paul exhorted his readers, then and now: “Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from
the dead …” (2 Timothy 2:8). And we’re told to “… remember the words which were spoken
before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ …” (Jude 1:17, NKJV).
The only way to remember God’s commandments, His encouragements, His provision,
is to spend time—quality time—in His word. And the best way to remember His
blessings in your own life is to write things down. Journal. Have a blessings
notebook. Keep a calendar where you can jot down what God has taught you or
done for you.
And remember how much God loves you.
