Good Morning July 30

As we get older, many of us face the problem of forgetfulness. Did you ever walk into the middle of a room, and then ask yourself, “what did I come in here for?” Come to think of it, I’ve been doing that for a long time! Did you ever think of God as being forgetful? He is, but His forgetfulness is by choice, and it is selective. In His great mercy He chooses to forget our sins, and not hold them against us. He said through Jeremiah, “I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” (31:34) This is the marvelous forgetfulness of God! As we come to Him by way of the cross of Jesus Christ, He lets all of our sins fall to the ground right there, and sees us wearing the white robe of Christ’s righteousness. He remembers our sins no more. So, when we have those “senior moments” it reminds us of the wonderful grace that allows us to walk free with our Lord.
