— WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO REMEMBER JESUS?
1. Remember His Words
His words revealed God the Father to us
His words exposed our sins
His words promised eternal life to his folowers
He taught how to live
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
63 .... the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

When we went on a weekend road trip with some friends, we had our first experience using a Global Positioning System. The GPS has a female voice, so our friends John and Mary call their device Gladys. We programmed our destination into the GPS, and she did her job and plotted our course. Then we sat back. Having put our faith in this little navigator, we let her direct us
“Turn right in .2 miles,” Gladys said confidently. She was right—Gladys is always right. In fact, when we made an unexpected detour to get gas, she got a bit insistent: “Please make a U-turn . . . Please make a U-turn at your earliest convenience!”
Gladys had calculated a route for us, but we had gone a different way. That was our choice, naturally. But if we had continued going our own way, we would have become lost.
Isaiah 53:6 reminds us that just like sheep, we have a tendency to go astray. That’s why we need a Shepherd to guide us and a Savior to pay the penalty for our sin.
No matter how far you’ve traveled in the wrong direction, it’s not too late to turn around. God is ready to forgive and restore (Ps. 32:5). If you’re headed down the wrong road, please make a U-turn.
2. Remember His Work
- Jesus came to do something no one else could do
- He suffered and died to pay the penalty of our sins and to save all who would believe
To believe means to accept and trust the Work of Jesus
