Remind Me…

Reaching Out to God

I saw a cartoon on Facebook this week that showed a man looking up to the sky and saying, “Speak to me God!.” The next scene showed God’s hand reaching down to earth holding a bible.

That is how God speaks to us today, through His written word. Paul even said that he wrote all that he did so that when we read it we can understand God’s message for us. (Ephesians 3:2-4).

In our daily bible reading my wife and I are now reading about the arrest, trial, death, burial and resurrection of Christ. God is speaking to us, reminding us once again of the greatest event that ever happened in human history.

This past Sunday in our worship service our brother Dennis led us in singing one of my favorite hymns titled, “Remind me dear Lord.” If you heard our congregation singing this hymn you would understand why we sing A Capella, (without musical accompaniment), because there is nothing sweeter than the human voice in praising God. Notice the words to this hymn though as they speak to our need to be reminded.

 

The things that I love and hold dear to my heart

Their just borrowed they’re not mine at all
Jesus only let me use them to brighten my life
So remind, me remind me dear Lord

Roll back the curtain of memory now and then
Show me where you brought me from
And where I could have been
Remember I’m human, and humans forget
So remind me, remind me dear Lord

Nothing good have I done to deserve God’s own Son
I’m not worthy of the scars in his hands
Yet he chose the road to Calvary to die in my stead
Why he loved me I can’t understand

Roll back the curtain of memory now and then
Show me where you brought me from
And where I could have been
Remember I’m human, and humans forget
So remind me, remind me dear Lord.”

Could it be that it’s time for you to be reminded of all that God has done for you? When is the last time you worshiped with your church family and praised him?
