Have You Forgotten?

An elderly man moved into a retirement community. Very quickly, he made a number of friends. One lady was very attracted to him, and he was very attracted to her. After spending much time together, one evening he proposed, and she agreed to marry him.

The next morning he woke up remembering his proposal, but he couldn't remember her answer. So he went to her and said, "I'm really embarrassed to admit this. I know I proposed to you last night, but I can't remember if you said 'Yes' or 'No.'" The woman replied, "Oh, thank goodness! I remembered saying 'Yes' to someone last night but I couldn't remember who asked me."

We can all relate with a story like this. Regardless of our age or mental capability, we forget some of the most important memory pegs of life. But when it comes to our relationship with Jesus—when and why it officially began—our memory can’t fail us.

As the Son of God, Jesus said, “I love you so much I gave my life for you.” As a baptized believer, you said, “I love you so much I give my life to you”. The proposal was offered. It was accepted. The rest is history.

Have you forgotten? Some say they have, but they haven’t. And on the Day of Judgment, God won’t forget either.
