Put The Lord In Remembrance
He wants to bless His people. He wants to bless His people the Israelites. And He wants to bless His people the Christians. He has created both to praise Him. Both fail to call upon Him as they should. Both become weary of Him. Both forget about Him. Both fail to bring the offerings and sacrifices to Him that He deserves. He is not a micro-manager that forces His will on either of them. He gets tired of the sins of both. And yet He has blotted out and forgets the sins of both. He wants to continue doing that and He wants to do more of it. He wants both to remember Him and His mercy and forgiveness.
Isaiah 43:21-27: This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. 22 But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. 23 Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense. 24 Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities. 25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. 26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified. 27 Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.
Romans 4:5: But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Faith is counted for righteousness for both. Has it happened to you? Do you remember to thank Him for it and praise Him for it as often as you should? If you have been forgiven, what more important thing could you remember?
