Remember the Day

What day is most important to you? You probably have several from which to choose. The Israelites also had several to choose from, but the day when they left Egypt was surely the greatest, or at least one of the greatest, “And Moses said to the people: ‘Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out of this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten'” (Exodus 13:3).
Deliverance from bondage was worth remembering. It was worth it for Israel, and it should be worth it for us. Have you not been delivered from bondage? If so, why do we remember the day of our birth into this world more than we do the day in which we were born in the spirit?
Most Christians I know can tell you the day and place they were born, but they cannot remember the date of their baptism. Find out that date, if you can, and every year remember that day, because on that day the Lord released you from your bondage to sin and in so doing, He saved you from hell and gave you the hope of heaven.
