The Feast of Remembrance

13 Mar

The Feast of Remembrance…

The children of Israel were told to celebrate Passover every year, so that they would never forget how the Lord had saved them out of Egypt.

Paul was at the end of his life. He had once opposed the gospel but his life as an enemy of God was long over. He had been in the Lord for decades, known throughout the world as a saint.

Paul, at the end of his life, tells the story of getting saved as if it were yesterday. He calls himself, not the greatest of saints, but the greatest of sinners. He remembered how God took him out of darkness and into His marvelous light… as if it were yesterday.

If you want to get to the Promised Land, you must never stop thanking God for taking you out of Egypt. Simon Peter wrote that those who aren’t godly or increasing in godliness, are those who have forgotten their salvation.

Don’t forget to remember to thank the Lord for all He saved you from. Give thanks to the Lord for saving you out of Egypt and one day, you’ll give thanks to the Lord for bringing you into the Promised Land.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. 2 Peter 1:3-9

Take time to thank God today for all the things He’s saved you from.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
