REMIND ME, DEAR LORD

Introduction

Our featured song this week is "Remind Me, Dear Lord," by Dottie Rambo, sung here in acapella by Vocal Union. The chorus reads:
Roll back the curtain of memory now and then
Show me where you brought me from and
Where I could have been
Just remember I'm a human and human's forget
So remind me, remind me dear Lord
The fifth line of the chorus,"Just remember I'm a human and human's forget," is so true, as many of us, including myself, can attest! Peter writes in 2 Peter 1:12:
Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
Sometimes, when the preacher preaches a sermon on a familiar topic, someone will complain, "I've heard that before, preach on something less familiar." Did you ever stop to consider that Biblical writers might have heard a similar complaint? We can imagine someone reading, or hearing, Paul's epistles, or Jeremiah's prophecies, complaining, "We have read all of that before, prophet, prophesy on a different topic!" The prophets repeated the same topics, often the same, words, over and over. Why? For at least two reasons: 1)They did not listen to and obey the words given by God through the prophets; 2) They needed to be reminded of the truths that they had heard many times before, but had forgotten. They needed to pray, or sing, "Just remember I'm a human and human's forget!"

Remembrance as Used by Peter

The word, remembrance is found twenty-two times in the King James translation of the New Testament. Paul uses the word twelve times in his epistles, while Peter uses it four times in 2 Peter.
The word, as used in 2 Peter 1:12, means, "To remind quietly," according to Strong. So Peter says, "I will not neglect to remind you of these things, though you know them."
Peter writes in, 2 Peter 1:13, "Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance." Here, the word, remembrance, means, "A reminding; a remembrance," according to Strong and Thayer. So, Peter says, "I think it is suitable to put in you a remembrance of these things. It is the same word used in 2 Peter 3:1 where Peter writes, "This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance." So Peter says he wrote two epistles to put his readers into memory of important truths that they already knew.
