“Never Forget”

Exodus 13: 3,14-15

3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.

14 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:

15 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.

This act of sacrificing and redeeming was used as a remembrance of what God had done for the children of Israel in saving them from the Egyptians. But, it was also used in teaching future generations of the greatness and mightiness of God’s salvation. In the entire OT, this powerful act of God is referred to time and time again as a proof of God’s power in salvation.

I am reminded of a verse in the NT I Peter 3:15b, which says, “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you…”

This is exactly what God was commanding Moses to tell the Israelites. That they should always remember what God has done. How mighty and how miraculous his salvation was and and also that they should teach this to future generations that were not around for this.

We should do the same. We should never forget all that God has done for us. We should always remember that we were not worthy of the Salvation that God gives, yet He gave us freely. We must always remember the great price it took to save us from our sin.

But not only remember, we need to share this great news with everyone, especially our family. This is our hope, this is our life, this is the reason for living. It is Christ and what He did on the cross for our sin.

Does your family know all that Christ did for them?

Do your children know how wonderfully Christ has changed you?

When people ask why you attend church and why you serve Jesus, you should reply to them, it is because of what God has done for you when He sent his son to die for you.

  1. Always remember what God has done for you
  2. Don’t be afraid to tell others of the Hope that is living in you
