In the book of Numbers, we read the account of the Israelites wandering through the wilderness, their great consequence for disobedience and failure to trust the LORD (Num. 14).
But the Lord remained faithful and stayed with Israel, giving instruction and laws for the people to obey. He instructed them to make tassels with cords on their garments as a visible sign for them to call to REMEMBRANCE all the commandments of the Lord, to do them and “be holy to their [your] God” (15:40).
We are all familiar with the story – Israel does not remain faithful to the Lord but follows their own hearts, eyes and inclinations. Right after the Lord’s instruction for them to hang tassels, the very next account is the rebellion of thousands against Him.
Psalm 105 recounts God’s faithfulness to His own people, tracing historical moments of Israel’s history through the Pentateuch. The audience is exhorted to REMEMBER the faithfulness of the Lord; to respond in celebrations of praise to the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and Moses. To the Lord, their God.
What do the exhortations for Israel mean for us, a “new covenant people,” today? While we are unfamiliar with cords, tassels, animal sacrifices and old covenant practices – are we not also a wilderness people? Do we not often follow our own sinful desires instead of REMEMBERING the Lord our God? Is it not God who is steadfast in His faithfulness to us? We too, are to REMEMBER. As believers under the new covenant, we REMEMBER the once for all, single sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10) and we REMEMBER the glorious truths in the marvelous works of faithfulness that He has done for us. We REMEMBER that because of Jesus, there is great help for you and me in 2022, as we strive to walk in obedience to the Lord, our God.
Remember the Restorer
Betsy Bolick, Perkinsville Baptist Church
We know Jesus has the power to do miracles and heal people from earthly suffering. That means He certainly has the power to forgive our sins and provide eternal life. In this session, we will remember how Christ is the restorer of our relationship with the Father, and for the believer, the restorer of our fellowship when we break away in sin.
Remember He’s Returning
Savanna Wood, Perkinsville Baptist Church/Reliant Ministry
The gospel is the good news that Jesus came to earth, lived the perfect life we could not live and died to pay the price for our sins. Defeating death, Jesus rose from the grave, ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father until He returns again. This breakout session will challenge us to remember Christ’s imminent return and how it should impact our lives today as we pursue holiness and persist in discipleship.
Remember You’re a Part of the Body of Christ: Living in Biblical Community
Meredith Snoddy, Green Street Baptist Church
Following Christ was never meant to be a solo endeavor. Scripture continually displays life lived in community, bearing one another’s burdens and rejoicing in fellowship. In the midst of chaos, however, we often believe we can do this alone. In this breakout session, we will look at what Scripture teaches about biblical community and what that means for us.
Remember the Power of God’s Presence: Battling Rebellion, Shame and Fear
Michal Rudolph, The Summit Church
In the wilderness, God dwelt among His people in the tabernacle, intentionally located in the center of their camp. As we structure our busy lives, we are called to keep Christ at the center, even as we battle idols of rebellion, shame and fear. Together we’ll explore how God’s presence drives out fear.
Remember God’s Provision: The Holy Spirit
Denise O’Donoghue, Imago Dei Church
As New Covenant believers, we have been granted the gift of the Holy Spirit who dwells among us and is our great help. This gift gives guidance, convicts us of sin and intercedes for us. In this breakout session, we will be encouraged to remember the beautiful gift of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Remember to Find Your Place in the Body of Christ
Tabatha Frost, Providence Baptist Church
Just as one body has many parts that altogether make up the body, so does the body of Christ. What is your part in the body? Join us as we discuss the different spiritual gifts and how using them for building up the church can help the church more accurately reflect Christ to the world.
Remembering God’s Presence: Tracing the History of the Tabernacle
Christy Thornton, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
God became flesh and tabernacled among us. The tabernacle as the “Tent of Meeting” may have only been used for a small period of Israel’s history, but it connects the very first pages of the Bible, points us the Jesus — the true tabernacle — and reminds us to look forward to the tabernacle of New Creation. In this breakout, we’ll take a look at the historical development of the tabernacle and how it connects to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Remembering Christ in Our Homes
Annie Locke, Treasuring Christ Church
Do you long to walk more in step with Christ as His disciple? Are you a weary parent, or the only believing parent in your home, wondering how to lead your family to love God and others well? Join us as we look closely at God’s Word and trust Him to equip and encourage us with everything we need in Christ to be the disciples He has called us to be in possibly our most challenging sphere of influence: our homes.
