Christianity is a historical faith. Our way like Judaism before us is fundamentally based on remembering the saving acts of God in human history. Past tense matters. It enlivens the present and nurtures hope for the future. Remembering can be a very spiritual act. Scripture calls on us to remember.
I will preach a message series in May titled, Remember. I pray and hope that God will use it to renew our passion for him and our commitment to his work in the Earth. The focal texts for the series are:
May 3 - 1 Chronicles 16:8-36
May 10 - Isaiah 49: 14-16
May 17 - Deuteronomy 8:1-18
May 24 - Philippians 1:3
May 31 - Hebrews 13:2-3; Galatians 2:10
