Much is written about memories, sweet ones, bitter ones, and ones worth remembering, such as the Memorial at Oklahoma City, Twin Towers, and Arlington National cemetery.
Lewis Carrol penned a great story many of us recall fondly, Alice in Wonderland. Here's a brief statement worth considering:
"It's a poor sort of memory that only works backward."
Carrol had a point if he meant looking back on bad memories. To do this causes all sorts of problems in our life as Christians or not.
When you passionately recall bad or good memories, you are reliving the experience.
The Bible has many pages of memories; some look back to events that are designed to fire enthusiasm for now and/or the future.
Such as the Lord's Supper, often called Communion and other titles. This ritual does several things for memory:
Remember His sacrifice
Remember His promise to come again!
God's memories encourage living for Jesus.
