The Power of Remembrance and Thanksgiving
Be Careful What You Say
Life and death lie in the power of the tongue, so it is important to be mindful of what you say. Choose your words wisely in order not to become a victim of the poor choice of words but rather be a victorious child of God.
1 Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the Lord.
2 Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people:
It is you who have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them.
So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the Lord.
3 Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply.
4 I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them, and they shall no longer fear longer or be dismayed, nor shall any be missing, says the Lord.
5 The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name by which he will be called: “The Lord is our righteousness.”
33 When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the criminals, one on his right
and one on his left.
34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots to divide his clothing.
35 And the people stood by watching, but the leaders scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!”
36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and
offering him sour wine
37 and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!”
38 There was also
an inscription over Him,
“This is the King of the Jews.”
39 One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding Him and saying, “Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”
40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God,
since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?
41 And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.”
42 Then he said,
“Jesus, remember me when you come in your kingdom.”
Never forget the many wonderful things that God has done in your life. Constantly remember the goodness of the Lord.
