Remember Me

Yet the chief butler did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
Genesis 40:23

Remember Me
The chief butler owed his life to Joseph. But the chief butler forgot to remember him! Perhaps, with his new lease on life, he was simply taken up with his blessings. When Pharaoh’s dream jogged his memory, he came forward and spoke of Joseph as “a young Hebrew man, a servant” (41:12). Don’t we see veiled in these words a beautiful picture of our Lord? There is nothing that we can tell the Father about the Lord Jesus that He does not already know; and yet the Father delights to hear us speak well of Him! Sometimes, we too, need a gentle reminder to refocus our gaze away from our temporal blessings to the Lord Himself.

Israel was warned: “And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you,” and, “Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God” (Dt. 8:2, 11). In Paul’s last letter to Timothy, he reminded him to “remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer” (2 Tim. 2:8–9). Paul wanted him to be occupied with the greatness and glory of the One who was raised. How uplifting to our spirits in the midst of trial and suffering to know that we serve a living, victorious, Savior!

On the night of His betrayal the Lord Jesus gathered His disciples, and with bread and wine instituted a new supper. The bread, He explained, was to represent His body, and the wine, His blood. He said to them, “Do this in remembrance of Me” (Lk. 22:19). If we do it out of a mere sense of duty, it eventually becomes wearisome and monotonous. This may explain why there are so many silent priests! But when it is done out of genuine love and affection for the Lord Jesus, the very atmosphere and tone of the occasion is changed to one of joy, and an abundant outflow of worship. Let us not forget to remember Him!

Jesus … said, … I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in me should not abide in darkness.
