Spiritual Amnesia

Spiritual Amnesia

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9).

A person who get hits on the head will sometimes suffer a temporary memory loss, commonly known as amnesia.  As he tries to clear the fog from his mind, he wonders "Where am I?  Who am I?"  These questions remain unanswered until he can overcome his amnesia.

On occasion, the Christian believer can also suffer from spiritual amnesia.  Because of a blow from sin or one of the devil's attacks, confusion fills his mind.  When we suffer from spiritual amnesia, we forget where we are heading on our journey—heaven.  We also forget who we are—the people of God.  Spiritual amnesia can even effect our memory of whose we are—God's own precious possession.  What is God's charge to those who suffer from spiritual amnesia?

Know who you are.  You are not a people who stumble over Christ, a people who question His claims and deity and refuse to believe Him.  You are a people who believe Christ, a people who are building your lives upon the Foundation Stone of God's Son.  You have taken your lives and laid them upon Him; you have entrusted your whole being into the keeping of Christ.  Therefore, know who you are: you are the people of God, the people He is building to live with Him forever and ever. Once you believe in God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, you become very, very special to God. You become special because you trust His Son. God the Father has only one Son...

·  only one Son who has God's perfect nature, who is holy, righteous, and pure, loving, kind and gentle just as God is.

·  only one Son who came to earth to save men by dying for them by showing them how much God loves them.

God loves His Son so much that when a person trusts His Son—really believes and trusts Him—God will do anything for that person. The person becomes very, very special to God.  

 

Have great day!  Pastor David.
