I had the pleasure to give the address at a World War One commemorative event at the weekend and said that we should remember this war so that we do not forget.
A very similar thing is said at the start of Psalm 103.
This is a Psalm that speaks out what the Lord will do for His people under the new covenant.
The Psalmist says forget not all his benefits, and I think he says that as we have a tendency to forget!
We have more benefits than just a ticket into Heaven through our salvation, we have so much more that we must not forget about.
Through the finished work of Jesus Christ the Lord did many wonderful things for us at the cross, that we now benefit from as we live under new covenant grace.
We should not forget that He has forgiven us of all our sin (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossians 1 v 14).
We should not forget that He has healed us of all our diseases (1Peter 2 v 24).
We should not forget that we have been redeemed (Galatians 3 v 13).
We should not forget that He has provided us with all that we will ever need (Ephesians 1 v 3).
We should not forget that He has made the way for us to live in health and abundance (3 John v 2); this is what having your youth renewed like an eagle speaks of to me.
We should not forget that He deals with us according to the finished work of Jesus Christ and not according to our performance.
We have so much to remember, we must never forget.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I now live under new covenant grace thanks to the finished work of Jesus Christ”.
Psalm 103 v 2…..Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits
