God who remembers

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. (Hebrews 6:10)

Nothing you do for Christ’s sake is forgotten.  God remembers what we do for his sake.

Some things are forgotten.  “Their sins and iniquities I will remember no more,” says the Lord in Jeremiah 31:34.  The Hebrew writer might have said something about pure motives getting us remembered, but mercifully left that out.  He might have said something about our deeds needing to be done right — also not mentioned.  And he might have said something about victory or success, but he didn’t.  All things being equal, I’d rather win than lose.  I’d rather do the job right than not.  I’d rather succeed than fail.

But the standard advanced here in Hebrews 6 is intended to move people to buck up and not quit.  If you wait till your motives are 100 percent pure, if you wait till you can do the job to perfection, and if you wait till personal victory is certain beyond doubt, you’ll wait for ever.  But if you get up and get moving, you can trust that what’s done for Christ will last, because he is a God who remembers.
