Good Reminders

Sometimes we need to be reminded of things. We make a list to take to the grocery store so we don’t forget anything. You may keep a calendar in your purse or on your phone so you remember your appointments. You write a Post-It Note to remember something and put it somewhere so you don’t forget. We need people to remind us of things, too. Peter wrote:

So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. – 2 Peter 1:12 (NIV)

Peter took time to write his second letter to remind his fellow believers of important things so that they would not forget them. Even though he was confident that they knew these things, God thought it was good to remind them of who they were, what they believed and why they believed it. We need to be reminded of these same things. I think that this is why going to church is so important. We need a place to go where we can be reminded about who we are, to Whom we belong and why we believe what we believe. We need good reminders along the way as we make our way home.
