But you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and the Lord your God redeemed you from there; therefore I command you to do this thing.
Do you remember when you first gave your life to Jesus Christ? Remember how it felt to release all of that guilt and pain over to Him? Remember how "on fire" you felt? Nothing could stop you from telling others about Jesus Christ and what He did for you. We need to re-ignite that passion! We need to be people who keep in mind what God has done for us. We need to be people who remember.
For the people of Israel, Passover is a time set aside for remembering what God has done for them. The children of Israel suffered greatly while in Egypt; many lost their lives while in slavery. So Passover is first a time to remember the stark reality of suffering and ultimate death. We will all die, and though the thought is painful, it causes us to reflect and to be circumspect about our lives. Second, Passover is a time to remember that God delivered the people of Israel out of slavery. It was a monumental event in Israel's history and it was to be celebrated every year. God remembered His people while in Egypt; He never forgot them. Now, the people of Israel remember how God rescued them from death.
As Christians, everyday should be our Passover. God has rescued us from death by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to defeat sin. If you are in Christ, then you are free! We need to remember the deliverance that Jesus Christ brought against the bondage of sin and death. Everyday, we should reflect on His goodness. Everyday, we should praise and worship the living God who made eternal life with Him possible. We don't have to live in bondage or condemnation. We are made alive and new.
Today, you must make a choice. Will you choose to remember the blessings of being a member of God's family, or will you forget? If we forget, we do nothing but bring others down and cause dissension within the body of Christ. Just look at the chief priests and scribes. Instead of remembering God's greatness, and instead of acknowledging Jesus Christ as His Son to redeem, they decided to trick, take advantage of, and deceive others--ultimately killing our Lord. These are the people who claimed to know God and the Scriptures better than anyone else! Once again, Jesus' words ring true: "Take heed that no one deceives you" (Mark 13:5). Don't be deceived and don't deceive others. Take hold of the Lord Jesus; remember Him and what He's done.
As we go through our day, there are so many ways to remember the Lord. We can be a remembering people, for example, when we pray. Even short, simple prayers are awesome ways to remember the Lord and His people. When we're in communication with God, the Holy Spirit brings to mind many people to pray for. Remember what the Lord has done and what He promises to do for you.
"I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old" (Psalm 77:11).
