Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me… say to my soul, ‘I am your salvation.’ ” (Ps 35:1,3)
Our souls need to be reminded of God’s strength and His role as our deliverer. That is at least one reason that God has provided us with memorials. The Lord’s Supper weekly reminds the church of Jesus as our Savior (see 1 Cor 11:26 and Acts 20:7) and the gathering of Christians encourages us to remain steadfast in His love (see Heb 10:24-25). The constant reading of the Scriptures provides us with repeated reminders of our place in the mind of God to stir up our minds (see 2 Pet 3:1), and the many stories and examples of men and women saved by God’s deliverance surround us (see Heb 12:1).
These stories, letters, fellowship, and memorial acts speak to our souls a constant reminder:
“I am your salvation”
May we never forget.
Matt. 4:4 #Biblebites
