No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

Jeremiah 31:34 NIV

Listen to Words from the Heart

Remember No More

Since 2001, this Canada Remembers Project has proudly provided students across Canada with historical knowledge and an emotional insight into the service and sacrifice of Canadian Veterans. An initiative of Thomega Entertainments, they have made it a priority to successfully distribute its programming to thousands of secondary and elementary schools (including libraries, legions and other related organizations). Having been told that there is now less access to Veterans who are able to come to schools and meet with students in person, the Canada Remembers programming gives Veterans a voice and helps keep their message alive, forever.

In our world, we are often told how important it is to remember. There is an axiom that is correct – those who fail to remember the past are condemned to relive it. So, we build memorials and have holidays to remember important events. This is important and has Biblical roots. God asked His people in the Old Testament a number of times to build a memorial so future generations wouldn’t forget. And Jesus told us to celebrate the Lord’s Supper to remember His provision of redemption by His death on the cross. So, we are called to remember. God, however, makes a promise about not remembering that is one of the greatest promises ever made. In Jeremiah 31:34 He says: No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” The moment we trust Jesus as Saviour and Lord, our sins are washed away and will never be brought up again.

These have been words from the heart.
