March 22, 2017 THOSE WHO REMIND US
Even the most got-it-all-together people forget something at some point in their lives. Sometimes, we are fortunate to have someone remind us. Other times we just have to do without whatever we forgot. However, one thing we need to be grateful for is those who remind us about God. Those who remind us about what His word says. Those who remind us what we need to do that will us help us remember to turn to Him in all things. Those who remind us of what is truly important in life are a blessing from God.
2 Peter 1:12 “Therefore, I will always remind you about these things—even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught.” (NLT)
1. List people you know who need to be reminded about God.
2. Write down ways you have forgotten how great He truly is.
3. Ask God to give you the right words to say to others.
4. Stay in God’s word every day so you never forget about Him.
Dear Lord, thank You for those who are in our lives who remind us about You and Your word. Sometimes we get off-track and forget about You. We forget about Your love. We forget about Your power. We forget about who You are and what You want us to do. Help us to be grateful when someone reminds us to turn to You for all we need. Help us to remember to remind others about You as well. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Those who remind others about Jesus are precious in His sight.
We can be one of those people who tell others about Jesus or we can choose to just conform to the world’s ways.
Those who remind us of God’s love and His word are living according to His will.
When we stop and pray about those around us who need to hear God’s word, God will help us with the right words to say.
God’s will for our lives is to remind others about His word and His love.
Acts 20:24 “But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” (NLT)
Our lives are worth nothing if we are not sharing God’s word and reminding others that Jesus loves them.
