Communion

Today’s message summary of January 7, 2018 from Pastor Gus Brown:

Communion is something that many churches do every first Sunday.  Some will do it every service.  There is no set time to do it according to Scripture, but whenever it is done, it is to be done in remembrance of Jesus Christ.

When we come to the table, are we doing it out of ritual or tradition?  Is it being done just for participation?  Is it being done out of habit or because people might think that I am in sin or to keep others from being suspicious of me?

1 Corinthians 10:18-21

Consider the people of Israel. Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar?  What am I saying then? That food sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?  No, but I do say that what they sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons! You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot share in the Lords table and the table of demons.

You have to decide what table you are to feast at.

There comes a point where you have to make a commitment and say to yourself, “I totally commit to the Lord Jesus Christ.”  “I belong to Him, and therefore I cannot do what the world wants me to do.”

You and I have to make that choice.

1 Corinthians 11:17

A man should not cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God. So too, woman is the glory of man.

People observe your actions.  If you are living in an unrighteous manner, and if you do not take Communion seriously, then it does the body of Christ damage.  There must be a people of one heart and one mind in Christ.  God sees your heart of faithfulness and obedience, and when He sees this effort, He will make provision for you.  God will always provide for His work.

The people who have the mind of Christ have no reason for division within the body.  God will take care of the details if everyone has the mind to put Him first.

God says there is nothing impossible for Him (Matthew 19:26).  Only by the grace of God are we yet standing.

1 Corinthians 11:18-22

For to begin with, I hear that when you come together as a church there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. Indeed, it is necessary that there be factions among you, so that those who are approved may be recognized among you. When you come together, then, it is not to eat the Lords Supper. For at the meal, each one eats his own supper. So one person is hungry while another gets drunk! Dont you have homes in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What should I say to you? Should I praise you? I do not praise you in this matter!

There has to be a distinction of those that are faithful and that are following Jesus Christ.  Let that be you.

Communion represents a sense of order within the church.  It is not a ritual, but it is also not to mock who Christ represents.  We are all saved because of the work that Jesus Christ has done for us.  God wants us to really understand, within the process, that I am sinful, but also see how holy He can make me.

All of this is done not because of deserving anything, but because of love for His people.

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, broke it, and said, This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.

In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lords death until he comes.

 

Matthew 26:17-25

On the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and asked, Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?

Go into the city to a certain man, he said, and tell him, The Teacher says: My time is near; I am celebrating the Passover at your place with my disciples.’” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. When evening came, he was reclining at the table with the Twelve. While they were eating, he said, Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.

Deeply distressed, each one began to say to him, Surely not I, Lord?

He replied, The one who dipped his hand with me in the bowlhe will betray me. The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for him if he had not been born. 

 Judas, his betrayer, replied, Surely not I, Rabbi?

You have said it, he told him.

 

Note that we should never come to the table without settling matters of sin in our heart (coming as a betrayer), but rather come with the understanding as to how you are blessed and to remember God’s goodness.

As you travel through the Old Testament, there were many instances where people built altars as a way of remembering God’s goodness.  Communion is a reminder of what Jesus Christ did for us on Calvary, and for His sacrifice for us.  It is a reminder of His love for us.

Communion is also a reminder that I do not have to carry the burden of sin.  Confession of sin is necessary.  We are to examine ourselves to make sure that we are sincere in our faith.

2 Corinthians 13:5-9

Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Or do you yourselves not recognize that Jesus Christ is in you?unless you fail the test. And I hope you will recognize that we ourselves do not fail the test. But we pray to God that you do nothing wrongnot that we may appear to pass the test, but that you may do what is right, even though we may appear to fail. For we cant do anything against the truth, but only for the truth. We rejoice when we are weak and you are strong. We also pray that you become fully mature.

Everything that God has said has either come to pass or will come to pass.  God speaks truth; therefore, Communion is something to be taken very seriously.

1 Corinthians 11:26-32

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lords death until he comes.

So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sin against the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself; in this way let him eat the bread and drink from the cup. For whoever eats and drinks without recognizing the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. This is why many are sick and ill among you, and many have fallen asleep. If we were properly judging ourselves, we would not be judged, but when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined, so that we may not be condemned with the world.

 

As you come to the table, please take the time between you and the Lord and reflect upon His goodness.  If you need to say, “Lord, forgive me,” then do it.  If you need to ask the Lord for cleansing, then do it.  God wants to meet you where you are in your time of prayer.

Jesus was Sent to Us at a Specific Time

Today’s message summary of December 21, 2014 from Pastor Gus Brown:

Why was Jesus sent to us when He was? What was the purpose for the specific place and time for His appearance.

Genesis 3:15 is the promise of Jesus’ coming–thousands of years before He was born. Why so long?

Genesis 3:15

I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.

  1. Why not have Him sent a few years after Adam and Eve were put out of the garden?
  2. Why not have Him come after Noah’s survival of the flood?
  3. Why not right after the deliverance of the Israelites’ delivery from Egypt?
  4. Why not after God had provided the law and shared it with the people?

Matthew 1:20-21

But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.”

God is saving us from what?

Luke 2:8-11

In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David.

Why at this time?

Between the last book of the Old Testament (Malachi) and the New Testament book (Matthew), there are 400 years of silence from God. Why?

Many things take place during that time:

  1. Alexander the Great
  2. His five generals fought until there were only three (over a thirty-year period).
  3. Last empire from Alexander was Seleucid, which was founded by the last general, Seleucus. His dynasty lasted from 312 to 64 B.C. The Roman general named Pompey defeated him.
  4. The Greek culture that took root beyond Greece is called Hellenism (Greek civilization). From this formed the Roman army, the Egyptian army and Mark Antony. Israel was fighting with the Roman army to defeat Egypt. From here emerged Antipates and Herod the Great. Herod built temples to worship Augustus as a god. Daniel’s Abomination of Desolation was when the god of Zeus was set up in the temple (168 B.C.). Mattathias, a priest, and his five sons started the war of the Maccabees.

In Acts 6:1, we see the results of all of these changes in the Grecian Jews (Hellenists). During this time Herod through Roma appointed the high priest. Some of these appointees were not Jewish but they were most likely in positions of wealth.

God sent His Son because of the culture of this time. Why did God go silent for 400 years? What actions were taking place. These matters were being revealed in Malachi:

  1. There was a failure to truly worship God (Malachi 1:4-8). This matter of worship was regarded as a burden (v. 12).
  1. The heart of man was set on not honoring God (Malachi 2:2).

Malachi 2:1-2

“Therefore, this decree is for you priests: If you don’t listen, and if you don’t take it to heart to honor My name,” says Yahweh of Hosts, “I will send a curse among you, and I will curse your blessings. In fact, I have already begun to curse them because you are not taking it to heart.”

  1. The people turned away from Him, and the priests were not following Him (Malachi 2:7-9).

Malachi 2:7-9

For the lips of a priest should guard knowledge, and the people should seek instruction from his mouth, because he is the messenger of the Lord of Hosts. “You, on the other hand, have turned from the way. You have caused many to stumble by your instruction. You have violated the covenant of Levi,” says the Lord of Hosts. “So I in turn have made you despised and humiliated before all the people because you are not keeping My ways but are showing partiality in your instruction.”

  1. Those who were doing evil were regarded as good (Malachi 2:17).

Malachi 2:17

You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you ask, “How have we wearied Him?” When you say, “Everyone who does what is evil is good in the Lord’s sight, and He is pleased with them,” or “Where is the God of justice?”

  1. Those who are doing what is wrong have no fear of Him (Malachi 3:5).
  1. God is not worthy of our giving (Malachi 3:7-9).
  1. It is futile to serve God (Malachi 3:14-15, 18).
  1. Every evildoer will be nothing more than stubble (Malachi 4:1).

Can you see these matters today in America? Can you see how this applies to the lost generations of people who live according to what they deem is right?

2 Timothy 1:15-17

This you know: All those in Asia have turned away from me, including Phygelus and Hermogenes. May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains. On the contrary, when he was in Rome, he diligently searched for me and found me.

John 14:8-9

“Lord,” said Philip, “show us the Father, and that’s enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been among you all this time without your knowing Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I speak to you I do not speak on My own. The Father who lives in Me does His works.

Hebrews 2:14

Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, Jesus also shared in these, so that through death He might destroy the one holding the power of death–that is, the Devil.

The people who believe in God and His Word will be blessed. God held this as a promise to the people referred to in the book of Malachi and it also applies to those who have faith and trust in Him today.

Malachi 3:16-17

At that time those who feared the Lord spoke to one another. The Lord took notice and listened. So a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared Yahweh and had high regard for His name. “They will be Mine,” says the Lord of Hosts, “a special possession on the day I am preparing. I will have compassion on them as a man has compassion on his son who serves him. So you will again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.”


Give God Thanks

Today’s message summary from Pastor Gus Brown:

To say “thank you” and have people regard you as a messenger of God is something that we need in the world today. We want people to declare that there is a God in this land and that we can say thank you for His presence.

Psalm 137:1-6
By the rivers of Babylon—
there we sat down and wept
when we remembered Zion.
2 There we hung up our lyres
on the poplar trees,
3 for our captors there asked us for songs,
and our tormentors, for rejoicing:
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”
4 How can we sing the Lord’s song
on foreign soil?
5 If I forget you, Jerusalem,
may my right hand forget its skill.
6 May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth
if I do not remember you,
if I do not exalt Jerusalem as my greatest joy!

The songs that the people of Israel were called to sing by their captors were not considered to be songs that could be sung publicly, because they were considered to be sacred, but what the Jews did not realize was that those songs were an opportunity to witness and proclaim God’s holy name. Like the people of Israel at that time, who were on the banks of the river Babylon in captivity, it is the overwhelming circumstances of the world today that make you stop and weep. Yet, you need to remember and understand how God brings us out of the wilderness is what causes you to be thankful. You need to always remember the importance of God’s presence and not take Him for granted.

Deuteronomy 6:10-12
10 “When the Lord your God brings you into the land He swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that He would give you—a land with large and beautiful cities that you did not build, 11 houses full of every good thing that you did not fill them with, wells dug that you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant—and when you eat and are satisfied, 12 be careful not to forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery.

Does this remind you of America today? A nation that was formed and raised up to be a witness of the world. God has called us to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ and be thankful for His presence–even if no one else sees a reason to do so. We are to be His witness to the world in the presence of he sin and evil of the world.

Psalm 9:17
The wicked will return to Sheol—
all the nations that forget God.

Psalm 50:22
“Understand this, you who forget God,
or I will tear you apart,
and there will be no one to rescue you.

The world needs to see us praising His name in spite of our troubles and difficulties. They need to know the power of the living God and see His light, and the hope of the world. We have a song of grace, mercy, love and redemption to sing. He showers each of us with his love, mercy, grace and redemption.

Psalm 105:1-5
God’s Faithfulness to His People

1 Give thanks to Yahweh, call on His name;
proclaim His deeds among the peoples.
2 Sing to Him, sing praise to Him;
tell about all His wonderful works!
3 Honor His holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek Yahweh rejoice.
4 Search for the Lord and for His strength;
seek His face always.
5 Remember the wonderful works He has done,
His wonders, and the judgments He has pronounced.

Psalm 106:1-2
1 Hallelujah!
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His faithful love endures forever.
2 Who can declare the Lord’s mighty acts
or proclaim all the praise due Him?

In all things, search your heart and seek the One who is worthy of praise and give thanks. Who else can proclaim the works of God and His saving grace? Only God Himself and the ones He has redeemed.

Psalm 107:1-2
Thanksgiving for God’s Deliverance

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His faithful love endures forever.
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord proclaim
that He has redeemed them from the hand of the foe.

Our love for God depends upon our obedience to Him. God wants to show Himself as mighty in your life. The psalmist says “God is good.” It does not matter what you have gone through or are going through.

No one else can tell your own story of how good God has been to you. God has given you life, and you should thank Him for it. Your here because of the grace of God.

We need to be a people that sees the world as if we are passing through. While we are passing through, leave the message as to how God forgives, provides grace, and that He is able.

Psalm 107:8, 19-21, 31-32
8 Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity.

19 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them from their distress.
20 He sent His word and healed them;
He rescued them from the Pit.
21 Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity.

31 Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity.
32 Let them exalt Him in the assembly of the people
and praise Him in the council of the elders.

If The Lord is not on your side, who is on your side? If The Lord does not help you, who will? Be assured that The Lord will help you and be with you, because He never leaves us nor forsakes us. What has God delivered you from recently. He guides your steps. He cares for you. He gives you the reason to celebrate His presence and give Him thanks.

Always remember the goodness of God. Thank you, Lord, for who you are and for everything You have done!


Thank You, Lord, For Saving Me

Psalm 73 and Hebrews 2:1-3
Do you understand that you are truly saved by grace? Throughout your early years, it was God, through His love, that kept you and preserved you until you recognized the need to follow Christ. He loved you before you could begin to love Him.

We are to see the importance of recognizing the gift of salvation and its truth.

Hebrews 2:1-3
1 We must therefore pay even more attention to what we have heard, so that we will not drift away. 2 For if the message spoken through angels was legally binding, and every transgression and disobedience received a just punishment, 3 how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was first spoken by the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him.

What causes one to lose attentiveness to God and His Word? What are the distractions? Sin is a powerful but destructive measure that puts the focus on personal pleasure and satisfaction. It is the distraction that keeps one from recognizing the need for a Savior. God loves each and every one of us. The purpose of salvation is to “save” the person who is condemned because of sin. Sin is what separates a person from having a fulfilling relationship with God. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross takes the place of our sin that condemns us.

The distractions that keep us from God are many, including the appearance that others are succeeding in their wickedness.

Psalm 73:1-28
A psalm of Asaph.

1 God is indeed good to Israel,
to the pure in heart.
2 But as for me, my feet almost slipped;
my steps nearly went astray.

3 For I envied the arrogant;
I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4 They have an easy time until they die,
and their bodies are well-fed.

5 They are not in trouble like others;
they are not afflicted like most people.

6 Therefore, pride is their necklace,
and violence covers them like a garment.

7 Their eyes bulge out from fatness;
the imaginations of their hearts run wild.

8 They mock, and they speak maliciously;
they arrogantly threaten oppression.

9 They set their mouths against heaven,
and their tongues strut across the earth.

10 Therefore His people turn to them
and drink in their overflowing waters.

11 They say, “How can God know?
Does the Most High know everything?”

12 Look at them—the wicked!
They are always at ease,
and they increase their wealth.

13 Did I purify my heart
and wash my hands in innocence for nothing?

14 For I am afflicted all day long,
and punished every morning.

15 If I had decided to say these things [aloud],
I would have betrayed Your people.

16 When I tried to understand all this,
it seemed hopeless

17 until I entered God’s sanctuary.
Then I understood their destiny.

18 Indeed You put them in slippery places;
You make them fall into ruin.

19 How suddenly they become a desolation!
They come to an end, swept away by terrors.

20 Like one waking from a dream,
Lord, when arising, You will despise their image.

21 When I became embittered
and my innermost being was wounded,

22 I was a fool and didn’t understand;
I was an unthinking animal toward You.

23 Yet I am always with You;
You hold my right hand.

24 You guide me with Your counsel,
and afterwards You will take me up in glory.

25 Whom do I have in heaven but You?
And I desire nothing on earth but You.

26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart,
my portion forever.

27 Those far from You will certainly perish;
You destroy all who are unfaithful to You.

28 But as for me, God’s presence is my good.
I have made the Lord GOD my refuge,
so I can tell about all You do.

If you fail to understand God’s working in your life, you will ultimately drift away from Him. To understand God’s will and how He is operating in your life, you must study His Word and learn more about Him every day. We should not be deceived by the appearance of those who believe that they are prospering in their sin. In reality, their prosperity is short-lived…in fact, they are miserable.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you” —[this is] the LORD’s declaration—”plans for [your] welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

For the person who follows the Lord Jesus Christ, God has a plan for you. For the person who does not follow the Lord, there is no plan for them other than their destruction.

There is no escape from sin and its destruction without God. Remember the gospel and what God commands for each and every believer.

Romans 1:16-17
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. 17 For in it God’s righteousness is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.

If you give heed to the gospel and follow Jesus Christ in obedience, you escape the pain of sin and its consequences. Don’t allow the wicked to affect your heart and the way God has called you to live.

Psalm 73:21-23
21 When I became embittered
and my innermost being was wounded,

22 I was a fool and didn’t understand;
I was an unthinking animal toward You.

23 Yet I am always with You;
You hold my right hand.

Psalm 23:1-6
1 The LORD is my shepherd;
there is nothing I lack.
2 He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.

3 He renews my life;
He leads me along the right paths
for His name’s sake.

4 Even when I go through the darkest valley,
I fear [no] danger,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff—they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
as long as I live.

Everything that we receive comes from God. What we have is because of who we are in Jesus Christ.

Psalm 32:8
I will instruct you and show you the way to go;
with My eye on you, I will give counsel.

God is always with the believer, no matter how things appear to be. When you reflect on the goodness of God and all that He has done, you cannot help but be thankful for His preserving and protecting you.

John 10:28-29
28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish—ever! No one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

When we remind ourselves of what God has promised for us, we can remained focused on His gift of eternal life for all of us who trust in Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior.

John 3:16-17
16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.


Remembering Jesus is Faith in Action

Are you living to worship the Lord? That’s what we should be doing. Today, we will be focusing on the Communion table, and on God’s Word in addressing it. It is hoped that, through this, we will focus on living in righteousness for Jesus Christ.

Christians must discipline ourselves and focus on the Word of God, its values, and living in such a way accordingly. The example of the Communion table is part of that. Our focus is to treat this time of reverence for Christ as a special time of recognition, and not one to be taken lightly.

Jesus tells us (when we take part in the Communion service to) “Do this in remembrance of Me” (Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 11:24). Why is it important to remember Him, and what are we to remember?

  • The eternal Son incarnate, fully God and fully human
  • Jesus conceived and born of the virgin, Mary.
  • Jesus died on the cross for our sins.
  • Jesus rose bodily from the grave.
  • Jesus ascended into heaven.
  • Jesus will come again in glory to judge us all.

We are to remember that Jesus is God and was our propitiation for our sins.

Luke 18:8
I tell you that He will swiftly grant them justice. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?

Jesus asked if He would find anyone who will live in faith for Him?

To remember Jesus is a demonstration of faith in action.

Dan Brown, author of The DaVinci Code, noted that Jesus was established as the Son of God by The Coincil of Nicea, and until that moment, He was viewed as a mortal prophet–a great and powerful man. Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that Jesus was created as the archangel Michael billions of years ago. They only regard Jesus as a spiritual body and without a physical body. In summary, people will try to tell you who Christ is if you are unwilling to seek out for yourself who He is. Jesus knew that we needed to actively seek Him and remember who He is because of all of the deception in the world. Many will try to convince you that there was no virgin birth or the resurrection.

The first thing that Christians need to understand regarding the Islamic belief about Jesus is that Muslims reject the idea that Jesus was or is the Son of God. According of Islam, Jesus is not, as the Bible articulates, God in the flesh. Second, in Islamic belief, Jesus never died on a cross for the sins of mankind, and that He never died on a cross at all. In fact, Muslims believe that Jesus will return and correct the misrepresentations and misinterpretations of Him and who He is.

All of this information is out there to bring about confusion, and Jesus wants us to focus on remembering who He really is.

1 Corinthians 2:5
So that your faith might not be based on men’s wisdom but on God’s power.”

Romans 1:4
(Jesus Christ) “was established as the powerful Son of God by the resurrection from the dead according to the Spirit of holiness.

2 Timothy 2:8
Keep in mind Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descended from David, according to my gospel.

Matthew 24:4-5
Then Jesus replied to them: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying ‘I am the Messiah, and they will deceive many‘”

Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Listen, Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is One. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Remembering Jesus is loving Him through obedience to His Word. This is how we are to love Him. True love does have boundaries, namely following God’s Word, but we willingly do these things because they are good for us. It is in this obedience that we are effective in remembering who He is and how much He loves us. We remember Him because of His character and His steadfastness. He never changes, and His Word has never changed.

1 Corinthians 11:26
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

Psalm 119:11
I have treasured Your word in my heart so that I may not sin against you.

What do you remember about Jesus, and what are you doing to remember Him until He returns to us?
