In the Bible, God constantly asks us to remember. Our memories are the foundations of our place in this world. We can’t know who we are or where we are going without knowing who we are connected to, who we were, or where we have been without memories. That would make us more like babies who can’t do anything for themselves. This Viva! series explores the importance of remembering as revealed from the narrative of the Bible.
In this lesson, we turn our attention to the things God instructs his people to remember (or not forget!)— specifically the acts he performed and the qualities that they represent. Repetition is one of the best ways to store and strengthen the memories from which we draw to form our opinions about God.
This lesson considers some of the things God intends for us to remember about ourselves. Sometimes we are motivated to forget. We don’t often want to remember painful or unpleasant parts of our lives. God has a different idea of those hard times. This lesson helps students see God as the redeemer of those moments.
Testing makes most of us cringe. Likely there are only a few times we can remember looking forward to a test. Maybe it was when we new we would do well. In this lesson, we will see how testing helps our memories even more and how the testing of our faith isn’t about God giving us a grade.
