Did You Forget Something?
It is easy to take people or things for granted. Think about the things that we rely on that we don't give a second thought. Now what would happen if these things were taken away from us? Some of us would be forced to do without these things. Now let's look at something else we may take for granted.
The cleansing of our past sins. Wow! Let that sink in for just a moment. This is something that we would never want to forget, yet we probably have taken this for granted as well. Peter tells us in 2 Peter 1:9 "But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins." (NIV)
What is Peter talking about? He is referring to the qualities of Christian growth found in 2 Peter 1:5-7. If we refuse to grow up in Christ we lose our spiritual vision and our recollection of our redemption.
Let this be your prayer today. "God let me grow in grace, and never forget what you have done for me!"
