Calvin forgot

Well, it never fails ……….. or I should say, I never fail. Seems I never fail to fail. You see, I don’t mean to fail; it’s just that I forget things so easily.

My boss asks me, ” Hey, did you remember to order that paint I asked you about last week?”


Or my wife says, “Hey, remember when I asked you to stop at the store and pick up some packing tape?”

Uhhhhh………. yeah, but I forgot

Or my daughter calls and says, “I really need to talk to mom, could you have her call me?” And then a few days later she calls back and asks, “Did you remember to tell mom to call me?”

Uhhhhh ………. well I would’ve, but something happened and ……….

O my, my …… the excuses run rampant.

My wife likes to tease me by saying, “If you really loved me, you wouldn’t forget.”

Ouch ……… It’s a good thing that she overlooks my forgetfulness.

The one person we can be sure of who never forgets is God. Except in the area of one thing ………. our sin. He has promised to forget that.

Hebrews 8:12 (NIV)

12 For I will forgive their wickedness
    and will remember their sins no more.”

Isaiah 43:25 (NIV)

25 “I, even I, am he who blots out
    your transgressions, for my own sake,
    and remembers your sins no more.

Rather than treating us as our sins deserve, God removes our sins from us “as far as the east is from the west”—an immeasurable distance (Psalm 103:12). Think of travelling around the globe. When does one stop going east and start going west? It is impossible to say. When we are saved, our sins are completely forgiven.

There is hope after all ……… it’s actually okay to forget some things …….. like your old, forgiven sins. If God has forgotten them, then why should you keep remembering them?

Thanks to the God who remembers those he loves but forgets their sins!

Mugs up!!
