stirred up and put in remembrance

2 Peter 1


Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting [you] in remembrance;

It was such an important thing for Peter to remind us of these things, shortly before he died. I was especially struck in this verse, by how we ought to be stirred up and put in remembrance. With so much busyness and tiredness these days, it is easy to become bored, let my mind wander, and start day-dreaming and wasting time instead of focusing on what I should be thinking about, like the things of the Lord and the Scriptures.

Instead of that, we ought to have our minds and hearts stirred up, and really remember and pay attention to these critically important things of the Lord. Let's work on bringing our thoughts into captivity (2 Corinthians 10:5), having a sound mind, (2 Timothy 1:7) and meditating on the Scriptures (Psalm 23:2).
