Remember — Do Not Forget

Sometimes 'remembering' must be a conscious moment-by-moment act of not forgetting what is truly important in the time of testing. David having endured many difficult situations in which enemies tried to subvert him, and his own desires undermined him, came to understand deeply the importance of not forgetting. It is very tempting to "forget" God's will in trying to achieve our own goals, or muddle our way through daily decision-making. But the Psalmist offers us this advice: Psalm 119 For I have become like a wineskin in smoke, Yet I do not forget Your statutes. ... My life is continually in my hand, Yet I do not forget Your law. ... I am small and despised, Yet I do not forget Your precepts. ... Consider my affliction and deliver me, For I do not forget Your law. ... I have gone astray like a lost sheep; Seek Your servant, For I do not forget Your commandments. In all circumstances, it is important to remember God's commandments for they are truth and they are life. We cannot succeed by ignoring or forgetting these most precious principles of living. But if we humbly acknowledge our need for God, we will find the good path by always returning to those foundational values outlined in God's law, statutes, precepts, and commandments.

But for those who are willing to open their eyes, and ask the questions the scripture has the answers to the big questions. And yes, we do need a Saviour. Here's why.
