Morning and Evening

For the morning of April 26th
by Charles H. Spurgeon

"This do in remembrance of Me." --1 Corinthians 11:24

It seems then, that Christians may forget Christ! There could be no need for this loving exhortation, if there were not afearful supposition that our memories might prove treacherous.Nor is this a bare supposition: it is, alas! too well confirmedin our experience, not as a possibility, but as a lamentablefact. It appears almost impossible that those who have beenredeemed by the blood of the dying Lamb, and loved with aneverlasting love by the eternal Son of God, should forget thatgracious Saviour; but, if startling to the ear, it is, alas! tooapparent to the eye to allow us to deny the crime. Forget Himwho never forgot us! Forget Him who poured His blood forth forour sins! Forget Him who loved us even to the death! Can it bepossible? Yes, it is not only possible, but conscience confessesthat it is too sadly a fault with all of us, that we suffer Himto be as a wayfaring man tarrying but for a night. He whom weshould make the abiding tenant of our memories is but a visitortherein. The cross where one would think that memory wouldlinger, and unmindfulness would be an unknown intruder, isdesecrated by the feet of forgetfulness. Does not yourconscience say that this is true? Do you not find yourselvesforgetful of Jesus? Some creature steals away your heart, andyou are unmindful of Him upon whom your affection ought to beset. Some earthly business engrosses your attention when youshould fix your eye steadily upon the cross. It is the incessantturmoil of the world, the constant attraction of earthly thingswhich takes away the soul from Christ. While memory too wellpreserves a poisonous weed, it suffereth the rose of Sharon towither. Let us charge ourselves to bind a heavenly forget-me-notabout our hearts for Jesus our Beloved, and, whatever else welet slip, let us hold fast to Him.
