Lesson 5:

The Rewards of Remembering (Hebrews 10:32-35)

The Power of Remembering
  • Remembering is the God-given ability through which past events in our lives may be present experiences
  • Through the ages the Lord has emphasized the importance of remembering (Ex. 12:25-27; Deut. 5:15; Luke 22:19)
  • In appealing to His people and urging them to be faithful, God pleaded, “Remember the former days” (Heb. 10:32)
  • Memory of former days can be practical, powerful, precious

Heb. 10:32a

  • God’s people have been informed (by God’s Word) with “special spiritual insights”
    • About God, His love, His plan to save man
    • About the deceptive nature of sin & its power to overpower
  • Contrast: the ignorance of the world causes people to lose sensitivity to sin and openly live in it (Eph. 4:17-19)
