096: Remembrance

Jul 4, 2019 | Christian Living, Podcast, Theology

It’s the 4th of July here in America—a day we celebrate our independence as a nation. And, for Christians, a day to remember how good God is to us to live in the country we do.

In my Bible reading I recently came across Exodus 13:8–9 which reads:

And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt. And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD’S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.

In this episode—which breaks a bit from the norm—I give consideration to the concept of “remembrance” both in Hebrew life and in the Christian’s life and finish out with some practical admonition for my fellow brothers and sisters here in the USA.1

Enjoy the show!
