There are many programs, apps, and activities for people to improve their memory. For Christians, there is a source of hope for our forgetfulness as well. God’s word reminds us who we are in Christ and what it means to be a child of God.
Here are four truths we don’t want to forget:
1. Because of Christ’s death in our place, we have been reconciled to God and have complete and full access to our Father: “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.” (Ephesians 1:7-8)
2. Through Christ, we have been made perfect and God sees us as holy: “For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19)

3. God loves us and has adopted us as his children: “God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” (Galatians 4:4-7)
4. Nothing can separate us from God’s love: “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
The more we saturate our heart with the truths in God’s word, the less forgetful we are. Like knowing how to tie our shoes or ride a bike, it becomes so much a part of us that we can’t forget.
