PASTOR’S CORNER: While living, look up!
Who will remember you the most after you have died? The phrase, “and it’s place remembers it no more” is a sobering line taken from Psalm 103:16 referring to the harsh reality of death, and how quickly most of us will be forgotten by the world when we are gone. We all have to face the truth that our own life will one day end, and the world will carry on and for the most part, we will be forgotten! Uffda! That is something to think about! This past week we heard the news regarding the death of one of our Supreme Court Judges; Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Already our eyes are being taken off her and we are facing a battle and question of who may replace her and when she should be replaced. How quickly we can be forgotten even when we are in important positions. How many of us can name the person Ruth Bader Ginsburg replaced? I couldn’t, yet I’m sure that person was well known at the time. Many of us have sadly had to part with friends, neighbors or relatives who passed on in the last year, but life had to go on and we had to learn to live without those special loved ones in our daily lives. “It’s place remembers it no more.”
How sad if that was all there was to life; live, die and be forgotten by most! However, the Good News is what Psalm 103:17 says, “But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him…” There is an eternal remembrance God has for those who are trusting In Him, in His Son Jesus Christ the Savior of the world. And, there is an eternal home He has prepared for those who are looking to Him during this life; God does not forget His own!
“For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” 2 Cor. 5:1
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands”….. Isaiah 49:15-16
The nail scarred hands of Jesus are an eternal reminder of His love and remembrance of you and Me. Look up to Him in faith and repentance, He will always remember you!
