1 Corinthians 11:24-26
The great and fundamental weakness of our make-up is that we are human – prone to discouragement, fears and doubts; afflicted with short-sightedness, so often powerless to change tomorrow! Yet, there is One who has never known defeat nor tasted of failure, One who is never worried by tomorrow for He is Lord of the past, present and future! To you who have tasted of the kindness of His mercies and have known and experienced His covenant keeping faithfulness in times of trouble, why so often in times of difficulty do you so soon forget His past deliverances?
Thus this sermon is a word of encouragement to all who have a testimony, to raise up memorials unto the Lord!! Dear Brethren, a memorial serves a purpose – it is something by which the memory of a person or an event is kept alive! God’s past mercies serve as a ground of hope and confidence for the present and future and the memorial brings those past deliverances to remembrance!!
