Reminding Leadership



“Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land.” (Joshua 1:13)

Repetition undergirds the purpose of action. King David exhorted God’s people to “remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth” that they “might observe his statutes, and keep his laws” (Psalm 105:5, 45). Paul told young Timothy that he was to “put the brethren in remembrance of these things” because they would be “nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine” (1 Timothy 4:6). Both Old and New Testament leaders insisted that they would “not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things,” since those reminders would establish them “in the present truth” (2 Peter 1:12).

Repetition will encourage everyone. The early church leaders returned to the churches they had started, “confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith” (Acts 14:22). Peter insisted that he wanted to “stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour” (2 Peter 3:1-2).

Repetition solidifies the message. The psalmist Asaph promised the Lord, “I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High. I will remember the works of the LORD : surely I will remember thy wonders of old” (Psalm 77:10-11). God assured us that the Scriptures were “breathed out” by God and therefore are “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
