Kindly watch my video below:

These are the amazing things I learned from Bro. Eli Soriano's teaching on the above-mentioned topic in addition to my own personal research as well.

The Apostles reiterated many times the need to remind others what the gospel stands for and what they are expected to do. For us it is important and it wasn't grievous for them to do because they want to inculcate the ways and patterns of the Lord to us. God knows it is the human thing to always forget and that's why the Psalmist said we should always remember. "Remember the Lord your God in the days of your youth" and so many words about remembering.

Philippians 3:1 (NIV)

Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.

As Christians, we should inspire faith and inculcate into the hearts and minds of our people what needed to be there so they can develop a deep sense of understanding and love for God. We don't all have the same level of understanding for starters and the Holy Spirit reveals the truth of God's Word to us as we go and grow in God. As Christians, we need to awaken spiritual awareness in others. We all need one another.

Acts 26:18 (NIV)

to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

The primary duty of a preacher is to open the eyes of the people. It is also to remind them of the things they have known already or heard before. As Christians too, we are to instil the Word of God and not try to find our ways around it with our own opinions.

James 1:21 (NIV)

Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.

Humbly accept the word planted in you. If there was no one to give a reminder or instil faith then there would be no word planted in us. This was what the apostles did. They constantly reminded the people of God about what they believed in, the ways of life they believed in and who they believed it. It serves as checks and balances so we would be able to overcome evil with good.

Temptations would come but the Word of God that we have heard, studied and reminded of will always help us just at the time we need it. If we have no deposit of it in our hearts with constant study and reminders, there would be nothing for us to use to withstand the fiery darts of the enemy.

Thank you for your time.
