• this love on the cross
• this love that reached out to you when you were HOSTILE to God
• this love that reached out to you, though God had every right to be—and WAS—enemies of us
Remembering the cross can have a profound effect on us:
Why then, let your mind come to rest

Because of what Christ has done for me, and as his disciple, God’s own child, I am to let the peace of Christ RULE in my heart.
I was CALLED to PEACE. YOU were CALLED to PEACE.
And we find that in Pennsylvania, these people, that many in the world would describe at best

REMEMBER THE MISSION
In 1629, when the favorite wife of Indian ruler Shah Jahan died, he ordered that a magnificent tomb be built as a memorial to her. The shah placed his wife's casket in the middle of a parcel of land, and construction of the temple literally began around it. But several years

REMEMBER THE THREE RULES
Do you remember learning to ride a bicycle? Did your bike have training wheels? Did someone run along beside you to get you going?
One of the great challenges of youth, after learning to walk, is learning to ride a bicycle. It requires balance and a sense of self

REMEMBER THE DUCK
A little boy visiting his grandparents was given his first slingshot. He practiced in the woods, but he could never hit his target. As he came back to Grandma’s back yard, he spied her pet duck. On an impulse he took aim and let fly. The stone hit, and the duck fell dead. The
Lately I have become concerned about the people I represent. I no longer see the Pride in your eyes that I once seen when I traveled down your streets in the Veterans Day parades and on the 4th of July. The people that once saluted me and those that held their hand over their heart

Max Lucado, in his book In the Eye of the Storm, tells the story of Chippie the Parakeet. He writes:
"Chippie the Parakeet never saw it coming. One second he was peacefully perched in his cage. The next he was sucked in, washed up, blown over.
The problems began when Chippie’s

ILLUSTRATION: AS a child I remember watching a movie about a little boy who got sprayed by a skunk. His parents nearly scrubbed the skin off him but they could not get rid of the odor. So for a couple of days, he had to sleep in the barn and eat his meals outside the house. He could see his family
GOD DOES THE REMEMBERING
A 91-year-old lady reads the Scriptures regularly, but now her memory is failing her. Friends commented, "So what’s the use of all this reading when you cannot remember what you’ve read." Her answer is always the same. "God has blessed me richly. I eat well and sleep

I DON’T REMEMBER
An elderly man moved into a retirement community. It wasn’t long until he had made a number of friends among the other residents. There was one lady he was especially attracted to and she was attracted to him, also. They spent a lot of time together. Finally one evening he
3. Lets remember His sacrifice:
a. The world drew the first blood. They cried “Crucify Him!”, “Crucify Him!”. They craved, desired, and sought to make him bleed. Why, because he healed them? Why, because he gave them hope and a future? Why, because he gave them the words of life and not death?

You remember the Gatorade commercial with Michael Jordan and the tagline, "Be like Mike." Well, our goal as Christians should be to "be like Jesus." 1 John 2:5-6 puts it this way, "This is how we know

REMEMBER WHO YOUR DADDY IS
George Foreman is famous for many things: boxing champion, pitchman, grill guru, television celebrity, and, he named all five of his sons, George. When asked why he gave all his sons the same name, he usually quips something like, "If you’d been hit in the head as many

I remember the monarchy’s coronations and highlights of marriages and awards. Images of rows of royal guards in their red and black, white horses and gloss black carriages, gold crowns and silk, velvety robes. As the pomp and ceremony captivate our eyes we hear Jesus saying, “Not even the queen,

“The Turkish landowner… is vividly remembered as corrupt, ruthless, and indifferent to any suffering he or his steward might cause his renters. [But] this scene is quite different from the one in the parable. At the very beginning, someone cares enough about the welfare of the master to report the

Remember to look at the possibilities in the area you see. (You see some things but don’t actually look at them.) We used the FedEx logo during our Gripped For Greatness campaign last year. We asked if you saw all you were looking at.

I Remember Forgetting
Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, was reminded one day of a vicious deed that someone had done to her years before. But she acted as if she had never even heard of the incident.
“Don’t you remember it?” her friend asked.
“No,” came Barton’s reply, “I
