This Sunday, May 22nd, 2016, Pastor Duane White began a two week mini series called REmember: The Power of a Memory, at The Bridge Church in Denton, Texas.
REmember: The Power of a Memory
Memory is a powerful thing, and our mind has the ability to REmember loads and loads of information. But memory does more than recall facts; it can also take us back to an event. The memory can be so strong that can move you right back to that very moment.
If the memory is a good one, then being “taken there” can be a wonderful and positive experience, but if it’s a bad memory, it can immediately take you to a dark place.
The truth is, the memories that we focus on today, shape our tomorrow. Memories are so powerful that we must learn what to REmember and what to not REmember.
As God moves us all into the next season of our lives, here are a few of the right things to remember:
- REmember God. He REmembers you.
- REmember God’s past, NOT yours.
- REmember God’s people are your people.
- REmember God’s presence IN your present is His greatest present.
God wants to give us reminders, or things to help us remember that He is with us. The greatest reminder (or memorial) that God gave us, is found in the New Testament. He gave us communion.
“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.'” (1 Corinthians 11:23-25, NKJV)
When Christ died, you died. When you become born again, your past is covered by the blood of Jesus. God’s past is your present reality, but it is also your future destiny. He remembers His promise over your life, and you are always on His mind.
