Remember--Lest We Forget

Scripture: Deuteronomy 8:11–20

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Memorial Day

Synopsis: On this Memorial Day, we do well to remember the sources from which our national blessings come. That is the same admonition given to Israel in Deuteronomy 8! Our text provides us with two warnings to "Remember--Lest We Forget" and take all God's blessings for granted. Each one has a key sign to watch for when we fail to heed these warnings!

Lest We Forget, Part 2

Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:12

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Memorial Day

Synopsis: "Lest We Forget" holds significance for us in a patriotic sense and also in a spiritual sense. How significant it is that when admonishing Israel to teach their children diligently "these words," that the first words out of God's mouth were regarding His own nature: what kind of God He is. If verse five presents to us the imperative of wholehearted devotion to God, v. 4 declares the logic for that devotion. Solid Bible doctrine provides the "why" behind the "what"; the reason behind the requirement. Once God's nature is clearly understood (v. 4) and its truth impacts the heart, the consequent response will be an unreserved, unconditional devotion to Him (v. 5) that will be expressed by obedience to His commands (vv. 6-9). To fail to teach the words of God to the next generation is to ignore the warning of v. 12 - "lest thou forget."

Lest We Forget, Part 1

Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:12

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Memorial Day

Synopsis: Our text today declares three truths that must be remembered. How can we pay attention to the warning given? How do we preserve the freedoms God has graciously given us to enjoy? We must renew our commitment to remember The LORD. How do we do that? Deuteronomy 6 provides the answer!
