Good Morning.

And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the Lord brought you out of this place. (Exodus 13:3)

Remember is a very common and important word in Scripture. It is used to convey two primary ideas; first, make certain not to forget very special instructions and, secondly, make sure to take action on behalf of another party. In this verse, Moses tells Israel to not to forget to observe this very special observance. In fact, the word “remember” is written in the infinitive form indicating that they were to remember for all time. Thus we conclude that it is something that we are to remember still. 

On the eve of His crucifixion Messiah said, “As often as you do this, remember me.” While I realize that most related this to observance of communion, the reality is that He was speaking of Passover — as often as you keep Passover in the future, do it in remembrance of the Lamb of God. Just as Israel was delivered from Egypt, Messiah brought us out of the house of bondage of sin.

Consequently, we are to take action (the other meaning of the Hebrew word for “remember”) on His behalf. How do we do that? We serve as His witnesses and testify that to all that He is the Messiah and Son of the Living God. We proclaim His death, burial and resurrection to the world and, as His servants, we determine to occupy ourselves with the mandate given to us — “Go ye into all the world” — until He comes again. So remember that “remember” means more than to call to mind; it means that once you call to mind what God said is important, you get busy fulfilling what He instructed you to do.


Blessings and Shalom,
