During this season of Lent, God continues to whisper “remember” in my ear.
Remember Who I am. Remember what I can do. Remember my Son paid for it all. Remember I am listening. Remember I love you.
And then my thoughts take a different turn with the word “remember”.
Remember the words I gave to Isaiah about Jesus’ birth. Remember how the psalmist wrote of Jesus’ death. Remember what I showed John. Remember I’ve always had a plan.
Isaiah tells us of a baby to be born. This child will be known as “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6, NASB). David foreshadows aspects of Jesus’ death on the cross in Psalm 22. John tells us in Revelation 19 that Jesus is also “called Faithful and True”.
As I remember who Jesus is and what He has done, I remember how He has forever changed me. I’m no longer the same. And He has even done new works in my life. Every day, I recognize my need for Him in my life. Jesus’ love for me continues to blow me away.
What comes to mind as you remember Jesus? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
