SAA Notes

Three times a year a Jew was told to come to the Tabernacle to worship. The three reasons for each season are: Remember the cost of your salvation and who bore it, rejoice in the promise of the coming harvest as seen in its first-fruits, and be joyful as you gather in the completed harvest. The New Testament sees the fulfilment of these feasts in the life and ministry of Christ!

SJA Notes

“When your son asks you in time to come, ‘What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the rules that the LORD our God has commanded you?’ then you shall say to your son, ‘We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt. And the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. …'”

What is the purpose of God’s law on our hearts?

To remember the Lord!

How do we guard ourselves against idolatry?

Remember the Lord!

Remember that He rescued us from the slavery of sin, dead hearts made alive in Christ.

Remember that He is the one true and only God, a jealous God, who is alone worthy of our worship, our fear, our service.

Why do we need to read the bible?

To remember the Lord!

It is God’s word written on our hearts that guards us against idolatry, that drives us to thankfulness as we remember what He has done for us, that grows within us that we might be good soil and bear much fruit.

We are to remember the Lord, our God.

More of Jesus, less of us! More of His word, less of our will. More of His praise, less of our pride.

* Father God,

Please remind us of You and what You have done for us.

You have rescued us, Your people, from the slavery that ends in destruction.

You have sought us out, wandering sheep that rejected their shepherd, and called us back home, into Your fold.

Thank You Lord!

Please help us to remember You each day, throughout each day, that we might point people to You.

Amen.
