Remembering

I. Introduction

2 Peter 1:12-13, 15 (NIV) 12So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. 13I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body…15And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.

II. God’s Goodness and Faithfulness

A. God Is Faithful to for Good Works.

Ephesians 2:10 (NIV) For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

1. To do these good works, we must be willing to give Him the little we possess.

Exodus 4:1-5 (NIV) 1Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you’?” 2Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” “A staff,” he replied. 3The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it. 4Then the Lord said to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So Moses reached out and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. 5“This,” said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their fathers…has appeared to you.”

2. How has God used you?

B. God Is Faithful to Sustain Us through .

2 Timothy 2:11a & 13 (NIV) 11Here is a trustworthy saying… 13if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.

John 10:27-29 (NIV) 27“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”

Psalm 139:7-10 (NIV) 7Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

C. God Is Faithful to Fulfill His to Us.

1 Timothy 1:18 (NIV) Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well.

1 Timothy 4:14 (NIV) Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you.

D. God Is Faithful to Unite Us to Something than Just Ourselves!

Colossians 1:13-14 (NASB) 13For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
